This is the first bag I've made like this.  I made another one with a lining but I used a "Sewing for Dummies" pattern to make it.  I used this tutorial.

I'm a little impatient so I tend to do stuff too quickly and a little half-assed but here's what I ended up with...

The outside is corduroy, the inside is a cherry print.  It's really floppy, I guess I should have used interfacing maybe?
This is my first post so if the pic is giganto I apologize Smiley

Interfacing is inexpensive
and works wonders. I'd
highly suggest using it
when using flimsy fabric.

That looks great!  I'm new at sewing too and there are 1 or 2 flimsy purses in my arsenal also.  I've been making my bags with the Jordy tutorial and it's easy and reliable, but I'm going to try a super eggplant version.  I like the way she does her handles and I bet it's easier to turn right side out after you sew the tops.  I looooove the cherry fabric. Where did you get that?

I got it at Joanne's and paid too much but I liked it.   Turning it right side out was a lot easier than I thought it would be.  The whole thing confused me until I actually did it.
