I just found out about Purse Palooza last week and wouldn't you know it is almost over. So this past weekend I dug into my fabric stash and made this bag.
I used a heavier weight fabric to make the bag sturdy. I bought brown with multicolor pink dot fabric from a local fabric discount shop.
The interior fabric is brown cotton and I used some the exterior fabric for the pocket.
The pattern I used is Sweet Pea Totes Simple and Chic. I love this pattern. I have made several purses using this pattern. It is just the right shape and size to fit just about anything. The pattern instructions are detailed with lots of pictures, I think I spent more time preping than sewing.
I had time this weekend to start another purse project. I hope to have it finished soon.
Have a great week!
