I found this awesome tutorial for the foldover bag posted by dory14ksmith and knew I had to make it.  This bag is completely my style.  It was a bit outside my skill level so there are some obvious sewing flaws but, overall, I am pleased with the end result.  I omitted the snaps at the handle and threaded some spikes in their place.  I broke a sewing needle while trying to sew the handles on, actually, and decided threaded spikes would be easier for me.  And add to the badassness of the purse.  I used a navy blue pleather-ish fabric for the exterior, a beautiful silky python print for the handle straps themselves (I am totally in love with that fabric) and a light blue microsuede for the interior fabric.  I also added pyramid studs to the front body of the purse. I also made the purse smaller than the tutorial measurements.  It is 10 inches across by about 16 inches tall.
This was definitely a learning experience.  Next time, I make this purse I know what to do differently to make this easier.

What an unusual shape, I'd love it: I could always carry a book! It sounds like you had quite a journey in learning to sew this bag. But you've got a great result in the end.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
