I had so much fun with this project! Marisa at make happy made an adorable little bag using a free pattern, and the minute I saw it I knew I had to give it a whirl. So Mike helped me pick out some great fabrics and I made one as a birthday gift for Christie, one of my two wonderful sisters-in-law. It turned out so cute I wanted to keep it for myself! But I didn't.
I'm hoping to have enough fabric left over to make another one. She won't mind if we have matching purses. Right?
I changed it just a bit: made it a little bigger, added some interfacing to the strap to make it more rigid, used just one big button instead of two, and I added an extra pocket inside. Oh, and used the lining fabric for the top as well. I loved how it turned out!
