The massive sunshine bag..

Remember the fabric I showed you yesterday?
Well here it is as a purse!!!
It's not just big it is huge!! Or maybe I am just small. It was a bit of a pain to make the directions stunk big time so I had to tweak it alot and ended up liking my way better.
I love the pleats and the fun foe flap, I think it gives the bag alot of character. The button, I think ads just the right finishing touch.
Not a great pic of the inside but I love how much room it has. The pattern did not call for pockets. I was like I totally have to have pockets. Who wants a purse witch no pockets? So I made a good size pocket .After I played with it for a while I think it's a keeper. Once I remake the pattern and add little bit of Jennifer flare it will be a fun bag to go shopping with.
You think it will sell in my ETSY shop?

You did a good job and the fabric is pretty and "springy"! :)

I bet it would be great for carrying books! :)

My first thought was "That is the cutest bag!" I love the yellow and also think it would look amazing in a black and white damask fabric!
I think it would totally sell.
Definately needs pockets - what was the original pattern thinking? We are women!!

I also am loving the bling around your neck girl! You are so fashionista!!

I am a SUCKER for pleats. They are hard to do, but turn out so cute!!! I love this purse. It's too big for a purse for me, but a church bag or a day trip bag, totally!
