    Wow, that didn't take long! It came out beautiful. You just posted the fabric!

    I love butterflies and blue is my favorite color. Do you want to PM me for my addy? Just kidding!
    :wink: :wink:
    That is very nice. Did you make the eyeglass case and cosmetic bag yet? If you have extra material another idea is a kleenex holder! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Your purse is great and you certainly did get a good deal on your fabric.

    I remember that fabric!!! My sister sent me fabrics for a quilt in the late 80's or early 90's and one was the one in your bag. The quilt turned out gorgeous!! LOVE your tote :D

    I sort of made it up..I had done the towne bag by lazy girl designs and then I took her idea of putting the pieces tog. with batting, interfacing, lining and outside fabric together ..turning then sewing back and front together and that is about all is the same...the rest I changed..left off the zipper and added the flab and velcro, changed the pockets and longer straps...and made it a bit larger
