Yes! Thanks...the title is Making Vintage Bags. There is seriously only one pattern in there that I don't like. And the skirt is Gap. It was too big for me but I've been holding on to it and I am glad I did. Makes me feel so clever to use it all up like that!  Wink The book is really worth checking in to. I had a hold on it at the library for two months before I got it!

I have that book, bought from amazon and love it.I like the names that all the purses/bags are given. Although i have`nt made anything from it yet, i often skim through it and seeing your bag has now inspired me, thanks  Smiley

A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!!!  I really love it.  I love it even more because you were able to repurpose a skirt to make it!!!! You are very clever to be able to use it all up......kind of like a jigsaw puzzle isnt it?

wow bag + wow bow = WOW! I love the new life you've given your skirt-I've got misfit clothes lurking in my closet that need that kind of hope... I also need to get my hands on that book!!
