The Prototype



The refined version



Slouchy bags are a dime a dozen, and I know I haven't reinvented the wheel or anything, but I really love the second bag. Its a great size, a great shape, and even though I was stash busting, the fabric came out pretty good too.

Let me know what you think, and thanks to previous slouchy-bag-makers who have inspired me.

Not really, although I have read most of the purse tutes on here, so it's probably been heavily influenced. I have a similar style bag at home that I used for size etc.

Thanks for the comments

don't worry about  not 're-inventing the wheel'.  You did a fab job and the bags are lovely!
