I got brave. I made a real bag!
I'd been looking for a summer bag that was fun and that I could take to work. It needed lots of pockets, a long-ish handle, and a zipper. I couldn't find one that I liked, so I decided to just wing it and make one myself!
I used the construction skills from the Noodlepouches I've been making, along with some inspiration from the numerous Vera Bradley bags that I have. I luuuuurve it.
This is me, however, so you know there was a lot of trial and error involved. I wasn't working from a pattern, so I had to adjust and modify my plans as I went along. I've never made a purse (I honestly never thought I'd want to!) so I really was just playing it by ear!
I'll be back soon with some of the construction process, and more details of how I went about it!
It's got 6 pockets on the outside, and three on the inside!
The pretty zipper might be my favorite part!
