I love this new Purse I made, or more like a Sac à main. It is HUGE and so very me. It's slouchy, and so Provençal. It makes me want to buy a pair of espadrilles and sit down with a tall panaché.
I wanted a new purse, something that no one else had, and uniquely me. I'm so tired of all the bags in the stores, no personality and their price is so ridiculous. I found this Fabulous Fabric at my local WalMart. Very reasonable and stain resistant light upholstery fabric. I had the perfect coordinating striped fabric lying around the house.
It took me over a month to decide the shape of my bag. I looked at everything out there and patterns too. I wanted a big bag with lots of pockets, but a rectangular tote wasn't quite right. I liked the rounded look, but I wanted big, something I could carry everything I had and small shopping items too.
So without a pattern and with a dream I started cutting. I made a few mistakes, but mostly they turned out to be happy accidents.
My bag has 4 large outside pockets a spacious inside with a nice sized inside pocket. I have enough left to make a matching make up bag too. J'adore. I think I want to sleep with it.
All I need is to find a snap closure and I'm good to go. I'll be filling her soon. I hope she stays around for a good long time.
