I made this yesterday.  I'm happy with it.  Although it's a wee bit bigger than what I really wanted in a purse...but that's ok.  More room to carry the girly stuff I can't seem to be without.  Smiley

It's made from an Indygo Junction Pattern "Boxy Back Pack" with fabrics from the "Al Fresco" Collection.

I love, love, love the fabric.  It literally screams summer to me.  Too bad it's only early spring...but I'm using it already.  Gonna force some brightness and sunshiny happiness into my life one way or another!

Only one regret....the grommets I bought were way too big.  I didn't look, didn't see, that grommets on the pattern were much smaller. You're supposed to be able to just knot the straps through the grommets to have it hold... I couldn't make the knots big enough for these grommets without them looking messy and horrid.  So I ended up wrapping the straps around another grommet and knotting to keep them from slipping through. It was an ok compromise. 

Thanks for looking!  Hope you like it!

That is one awesome pattern, I like it! The fabric is quite a summer collection but would look great through spring Smiley
