 My friend saw my Octopus bag and really liked the style of it and I offered to make her one. Once again it is the Notting Hill Handbag. My favorite purse pattern. So easy and I always love the results and wear ability of it. It just sits right on my arm.
 She liked the size and shape of it too. I let her pick out the fabrics and to save money let her go thru my stash and she found this focus fabric I have been hoarding for the perfect project since Oct. 25, 2011. LOL! When I saw the fabric I had to have it but once I got it had no idea what to do with it.
 I would have never picked it for a purse but I am glad she did because I think it worked out well. I called it Sexy Devil Girls because that was what the fabric was called when I bought it. I also have it in pink too. Still not idea what I am going to do with that one. I am trying to use up more of my stash this year so this was a great motivation to do that more. Buying more fabric is just so much fun.  Tongue
 Front of Bag. Took me a bit to remember how to post on here now...

3/4 view. I think the polka dots went well with it.

Back. The girls are talking on the phone and wrapped around huge perfume bottles.  Wink

And the inside is a nice bright blue with a slip pocket in the focus fabric. I like bright interiors. It has two snaps on the sides that you can open to give it more space. They have been unsnapped in this photo.

 Thanks for checking it out. I made this from start to finish on the 4th of July. First time I made a complete purse in a day. Normally I take nap breaks. Ha!

Wow. I love the brightness with the black and white. It's my favorite combination! This looks like a great size for a purse, too. Great job!

Great job, gozer! And, I love that your friend picked such a fun fabric. A purse is a perfect way to play around with fabrics! Thanks for the link to the pattern, too!

That fabric makes a great bag! And the dots coordinate so well with it!
