I envision more of a three dimensional feel than a flat purse. I also would like it to flow, no corners or hard edges.

After a few paper tries, I ended up with a 4 piece pattern for both the purse and the lining, plus the strap piece (not sure yet the best approach for that).

With the fun, colorful purse in mind, I have had my eye out for material that seemed suitable. I actually found something in the discount section of the fabric store, it was from last halloween...

it's a red pleather, thin but very shiny.

For the lining, I wanted a high contrast color, something to make it more versatile (and even more fun!) so I found a teal raw silk-like lining fabric.

Can't wait to get started.

I am in dire need of something to hold my stuff. I'm very particular about purses, so I always have quite a hard time finding anything I LOVE enough to purchase. So I shall make one!

My inspirations are the hobo style bags. I want something larger that will manage a notebook or two and fun, bright colors.
