So....I wanted to share my latest creation with you!  I actually made it last Tuesday afternoon/evening and have been using it all week, but I just got a new camera and have been too busy knitting and making costumes for Halloween and going to the Covered Bridge Festival to install the new software, but I got it done today!

Anyhoo.....TMI.....here is the bag:
The bag


Closer


Closeup of the ribbon trim (this was the hardest part - I swear!)


Closeup of handle


Closeup of the material (I was so in love when I saw it!!!)



So...that's it!  I used a pattern (McCall's M4936) as a starting point, but I added material to the top and bottom, changed the handles and lined my way, so really it was just an inspiration.  I don't do patterns too well!  LOL

Thanks!  It's an Alexander Henry fabric.  Every time I fall in love with a fabric I check and - I swear - more than likely it is an AH.  Such great prints!
