Opinions please.

I was at the Target the other day and I saw a girl with the cutest purse. I asked her if I could look at it for a moment she kinda looked at me like I was a purse snatcher or something. I then explained that I liked the design and I wanted to look at it to see if I could recreate it. She was totally willing then. So here is what I came up with . I like it well enough I just think it needs some tweaking here and there. I definitely need to make the straps shorter and the bag a little bit wider so that I can have it more pleated.
I do have to say i love the shape I think it is fun and hip looking. I also like the way it hangs and the size of it . It's not too big and it's not too small.
OK what do you all think. Please tell me I love feed back because it helps me to know what people are looking for.

You used the Wal Mart fabric! I actually found it at my walmart too. But I didn't buy it, cuz I don't know what to make with it. I agree with you. Make it wider so you can have more pleats. But other than that, I'm the wrong person to ask about this! I would want a pocket inside for sure.

I would just say a tad shorter on the straps! I love it and would buy it!

Love it! I also like the long straps and the fabric is great!!!

I think it looks fabulous and prefer longer straps, well medium long. I can't tell from the picture but if the shape is rectangular could you make it have folds like a lunch bag? Do you know what I mean?

Bee and Rose said...

It is really cute. I think the straps could be a little shorter also.

GORGEOUS! And the fabric...WOW!

too bad our Walmart doesn't carry fabric anymore. They quit carrying it in BOTH stores :-(

I totally love this shape. It would be super if it were a little wider and maybe slightly deeper. I could see myself using it as a bag for trips, especially if it had good pockets in it.

Cute!

That fabric is Georgeous!!! The design is cute, it would look good with more pleats. I like long straps cause it's easier to throw over your shoulder.

JANE said...

I like that. I agree on shorter straps, I'm 5'2 and can't go long. Not sure about wider but more pleats would look really cool!

It is sew cute! I rather like the long straps. The prints you put together for the bag and edge are great!

Kellie said...

Fabulous...and fun...and yes, hip! I've almost bought that fabric twice, now that I've seen it made into something I will definitely buy some!

Oh cute!! I really, really love the fabric and the design is nice! Long straps are useful, you can always knot them at the top once in a while to change them without actually altering them. [found you through SITS]
