So, I saw this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305585.0 and decided I wanted to try this bag.  The tutorial (http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html) made it look easy enough.  I found an old skirt that I never wore, and probably wouldn't again and some sort of suede-y polyester fabric that my boyfriend's grandma gave me a long time ago and got to work.

Here it is:

and the best picture I could get of the inside:

Here is the skirt I used:

I know it's hard to tell, but the skirt had some decorative seams on it that made it hard to cut out the pieces, but I got it to work somehow.

Also, for the button loop, I used the top trim of the skirt.  It had some pretty embroidery on it, but that made it a little bulky.

Next time, I think I am going to make the bag part longer and the straps a little shorter.  I love how you can change it up like that.

Well, I'm done talking now.  Thanks for looking!  Grin

And the color is so much better in real life.  I definitely recommend this pattern to anyone, just don't get discouraged by the sewing together of the handles.  It's tricky, my seam looks pretty messy but not horrible.
