 I recently joined the Games Swap and my partner really likes Pokemon. I knew I wanted to make her a purse that would be bright and fun so I went to a couple different fabric stores and finally settled on this fabric. I let her pick out the pattern. It's the Daffodil Tote by BlueCallaPatterns. I did the larger version here minus the patchwork on the front because I couldn't find enough Pokemon fabric to do that with. The purse is approximately 16 W x 9.5 H x 5.5 D.

 The purse has two handle types, short and long, depending on how the user wants to carry it. One side has a large pocket along with a zippered pocket.

And the other side has the front pocket divided into two.

 It has a zippered top. The top doesn't close the entire way though. Which I thought was okay once it was finished. Inside is another zippered pocket....

 ... and a slip pocket as well.

Inside the pocket was more of the printed Pokemon fabric but I forgot to get a pic of that.

 I can't take all the credit for the purse though. My fur baby, Egon, did his usual quality control.

Impressive work.  The fabric is so much fun.  I'm sure kitty was a big help, lol.

I love my purse! And I love that it has the open spaces at the ends of the zipper because it's perfect for reaching in to grab a snack!
That last photo of Egon in the bag is so cute! Kiss

Great execution of what looks like a very cool purse pattern! I love how bright it is. I doubt you'll ever see another one quite like it. You'll never get it mixed up with another purse at a party! Wink

That turned out great! The coordinating fabrics really all show each other off.

Teehee, kitty!

The bag looks great and I agree the open spaces at the ends are unusual but seem to work very well with the shape. And, as mentioned, they are practical in practice and that's what a good bag is all about.
