    Finally a purse for myself!

    I have made numerous purses over the past few years, but haven't made a single one for myself. This is the Bucket Bag from Michelle Patterns on etsy. http://www.etsy.com/listing/77849588...-bag-pdf-email Aqua is my favorite color and this fabric just makes me happy. It's leaning a bit in the pictures, but it really is sewn straight! Thanks for looking!

    Very nice job. I too love aqua. I love that you're keeping it for yourself. I give everything away.

    I really like the fabric and the style of the bag. Good for you for keeping it for yourself. I have the same problem when I make purses, complete strangers will ask me if I will sell them my bag! I just do it for fun not a business!.

    It's beautiful. I just love the fabric you used.
    I have made a couple purses for myself, but mostly they are for others. It's always nice to make some for yourself. I just bought some chevron fabric the other day. I will be making a purse for myself first out of it....lol.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!
