Bag done

This began in June with a purchased pattern for a stylized purse. Instructions were faulty to the point where I gave up & set it aside. Then I decided to design a bag that would actually suit what I carry. The zippered outside pocket has internal pockets for my cellphone & wallet. The other 2 pockets are for sunglasses & keys. I left the inside free for books, or whatever. Biggest problem was that I quilted front & lining together, then had raw seams to deal with. A strip of binding on the seam took care of the problem. The bag is much lighter than my leather ones, so easier on the shoulder.

Oops - will post pix later - I've used up my space.

Waiting on pins and needles...

Maybe we should give a tutorial on how to insert photo in the text? All you need is a photoshop album set up... and you put in your text box the image code it provides that starts with the letters:

Now I have to code my entire text and click the "check here if HTML tags are in the message" check box which is just below the message box, since I have a Mac and so can't use the WYSIWIG tool box (in fact, I have never SEEN the WYSIWYG toolbox!).

There MUST be someone here with a PC that inserts photo in the text with the tool box? Any assistance? Is there any special approach one takes?

Learned how to clear old pix. Laborious, but at least it works.

Wonderful! Love the fabric (I can see why you wanted a purse from this!) and your embroidered butterflies. And pockets --- one can never have too many pockets!

Thx. I like when it's not clear which is front of bag, so with this one, it doesn't matter. I did just find a lovely old black closure and will add to top of bag so stuff doesn't fall out.
