Yesterday, I was inspired by the warm spring (finally!) weather we've been having to make myself a purse. So... I surfed the web and came across several tutorials on how to make one for yourself. Finally I settled on a cute little bag that I found the pattern for FREE here on the blog Made by Rae.
She has some great stuff on her blog, and her pattern is super easy to follow. I do recommend you look through the pattern before you begin, and have her pictures handy to make sense of some of her wording. :)
This project was relatively inexpensive too! *Bonus* :) You will need 2 fat quarters one for the exterior and one for the lining (or you can buy 2/3 yard of fabric). Jo-Ann's has their fat quarters on sale for 99 cents until tomorrow (didn't realize the sale ends tomorrow- but even so, fat quarters are max $1.99 there) and all of their Dritz hardware is 50% off too- so you can get two magnetic snaps for about $2.50 which makes 2 purses with a final cost about $7! :)
Yay!! Not bad for a unique bag for the spring. :)
The finished dimensions of my bag are 11" x 7" and has a 10" drop. :)
