Ok, I love this one. I finished it this weekend, and I'm pleased that it didn't take me nearly as long as the previous purse. Seeing as this is only my second thing to sew (ever!), I'm pretty happy with it.
I found out that I'm going to Vegas in May for work (score!), so I decided I needed a big bag that can hold everything while I'm dashing around the city. I used a linen fabric, and while it's not as structured as the first purse I made, I think I like this one better. It's softer, and I just like the proportions a lot more. I modified the pattern quite a bit, making the bag bigger and lengthening the straps. The buttery yellow lining is also a linen.
I decided to take this picture outside in order to take advantage of the lovely morning sun. Look who was impatient and dying to come out to see what I was doing...isn't he cute?
