Your thumbnail looks to be a very cute bag, but doesn't open to a full size photo. Also - can't find the pattern you're referencing. Is it Butterick, or some other brand? Would love to see a larger photo of your bag and the pattern! :)

I "third" what JMarie and lynda noted; this bag is too pretty not to see it in bigger detail. -Lily

Fabulous bag, great way to use an outside inspiration to create your own personalized bag.

This bag looks so good, you did a great job. I just happen to have this pattern in my stash of purse patterns. You have given me some inspiration to try it!

Yours came out much cuter than the pattern envelope! Nice.

That is sooo cute. Personally, I think yours looks nicer than the bag that inspired you. Congratulations on your new purse.

I'd like to see more info in the construction technique--size needle, lining, interior, zip on top? Looks lovely.

SoSo, I cut the pattern exactly as instructed except I used the twill and I cut two strips of contrasting twil fabric the same height as the bag and pressed in the edges lenght wise and then I topstitched them both to the front and back of the bag. Since I have been carrying D&B bags for 5 years now I have gotten use to rolled handles so I cut the handles in the blue twill to length of the pattern piece but added a rounded bottom on each end of the handle. After stitching the handle together lengthwise stopping and 1 1/2 from the rounded end I turned them and them stuffed them with cording thus my rounded straps. I turn under the raw edges of the handles and topstitched them to the bag. I also used a finer gauge buckram to give the purse more shape on the sides. The zipper was added to a 4 piece construction which adjoined to the bottom section of the purse. You noticed the gold on the outside that was to coordinate with the gold button on my jeans in the contest. Hope I explained the construction better for you.
