purse project

I've been wanting to try to sew a purse ever since Shelley gave me this awesome book for my birthday and it's only taken 4 months for me to get the courage to attempt it.

I got this fabric at Ikea on one of our trips a couple months ago and sewed the bag part.

pretty proud of my liner and pockets :)

at this point, I'm loving the bag but it's definitely feeling a bit homemade, not in the good way.
I went to Anthropolgie for some inspiration and found this bag with some leather details

well leather runs a little high for me, so - don't hate - but i got the softest vinyl i could find :) I know vinyl isn't quite anthro, but hopefully it's not screaming homemade

(hmmm, maybe i should check my picture backgrounds a little better, as beautiful as the big white fridge is...)

anyway...this project was so much fun!
thanks so so much for the inspiration, Shelley!!

I love your bag! Bags are so intimidating but when you finally finish one it feels really good huh?
