So after about 2 minutes deliberation I decided to make my very own PLEATNESS bag!! Luckily I already had the fabric and just needed a zipper! So let me tell you a little story about my adventure! Looking over the instructions I didn't think it would be that bad so I started cutting out the pieces....and cutting...and cutting...and...... After an hour I was finally done and in serious need of a nap and some Advil.

After my much needed nap and the resolution of my headache I worked for another hour and this is where I ended up... Not too far..hehehehe

I then decided to put things off till the next day in hope that the little tailor fairies would complete it for me!!

No such luck!! Luckily it only took me another hour and a half the next day to finish it..

Although time consuming this was a realllyyy easy and fun tutorial to follow. My only struggle was with the corners once you sew in the zipper. My first zipper might I add!! So here's the top finished.. The pink zipper was calling my name at JoAnns!

There are a couple little boo boos here and there. Luckily my camera did a pretty cool job of hiding them.

And here's the always needed action shot..

Wow! Those jeans aren't as flattering as I thought. Of course I also had to show off my new tattoo!

And I promised my trusted assistant I would give her some credit!

Now I have some awesome springy, flowered fabric to use on my next one. I plan to tweak a few measurements here and there and make the straps longer next time. Thanks again Applesaregreen https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178244.0 for sharing this awesome purse with us!

Just saw this post - I realized today there are several cool posts I missed over the weekend . . . great job!

(What's the tatoo of, anyway - I can't quite make it out. . . . then again, I just got a prescription for bifocals, so it could be just me Roll Eyes)

I think your bag is great, first I've been on here in a while. I don't have bifocals and I can't see your tat all that well, but your assistant is gorgeous.
