This month there has been a Purse Palooza, full of Purses, patterns, bloggers, and prizes! One of these events included a prize for the best voted purse.If you have a Flickr account, please vote for my 3 purses 🙂 Vote here
This was for all purses made between June 4th through the 11th, and after the 11th voting is ON! Here are my entries!
This first one is intended to be a diaper bag, but I have not yet made the changing mat to go with it. I love how practical this is with the adjustable straps for a shoulder bag or messenger back, and then detachable back pack straps! It is about 13″ by 12″ and had 3 convenient pockets plus a key chain ring inside. You can see the full listing in my etsy store.
My next bag is from Amy Butler’s reversible market tote pattern. I love how big and convenient this bag is! It is 22″ high, Almost 17″ across on the bottom (little less on the top) and has a 5″ depth. The straps are long enough to sling over your shoulder. The fabrics used are Amy Butlers Disco flower in tangerine and the full moon dots also in tangerine. On the disco flower side I have a contrasting pocket.You can read more about this bag or purchase it here
The 3rd bag I made is probably my favorite! This is an extra large beach bag also with one of Amy Butlers patterns, and fabrics by Joel dewberry. Thisbag is extremely large, but still fun to carry around. I stuffed 4 full size towels (3 bath 1 beach) and a 2 liter and it still was somewhat roomy! I added extra pockets inside since I was making this one for me to enjoy. 5 pockets plus a key chain clip! The pattern had some pretty complicated detail work around the handles, but nothing I can’t conquer, and in the end it looks FABULOUS! I am glad you also agree. 😉
