 This is my favorite pattern. I love the way it fits on my arm and that it fits my Kindle perfectly. This is the third purse I have made myself from this pattern (Notting Hill Handbag) and I highly recommend it!
 I saw this fabric and HAD to have it. It featured both an octopus and stars. Two things I love. Pretty sure I bought the stars in every color it came in.  Cheesy  Sorry the purse looks a little rumpled. I carried it a while before taking pics and my stuff was still inside of it.  Tongue

Three Quarters


Back


 and of course my most dedicated helper, Egon.
 My friend saw this and decided she liked the style so I am making her one out of different fabrics next. I love how versatile this pattern is. It can take on so many different looks.

 Thanks for checking it out!

That's an amazing bag! Thanks for sharing the pattern name; I might actually try it out if it isn't too daunting.

Happy to see Egon doing his part.  Cheesy

 I love this pattern so much I will even share the link:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/175382295/handbag-sewing-pattern-notting-hill-bag
 I have no affiliation with this shop. I just really love the pattern and it's only $5. It's not daunting at all and in all honestly is pretty simple but I absolutely love it.
 I'd love to see what you come up with!! Grin Grin Grin
