Yes, It Is Another New Purse.

This morning I took this design I had sketched:

And turned it into this purse:

Of course, I adore the shape of this bag, but I want to know what you think of it.  I’d love it if you’d leave a comment to let me know what you like and what you’d change about this design.  It’s highly likely that this will be the next pattern I’ll make available for sale, so now is your chance to make your voice heard.  Many thanks!

    I love purses of that shape as well. I can put more in there without looking like I packed my entire house!!!

    Great purse!

    Hmmm, it’s darling. Love the fabric, love the shape, and especially love the rectangular metal rings.

    That is the best bag! The only thing that I would suggest is a cute closure (or snap) for the front pocket, or add it as an option in the pattern. I have the worst time with front pockets. heh

    Love it!

    I dont sew bags, but I think the shape is ultra chic . My vote is YES.

    How about this? You freakin’ amaze me! lol I love it. I think it is fun, and hip, but like that it has a definite shape. LOVE IT!

    I absolutely ADORE this handbag, and the fabric is wonderful 🙂 I can’t wait to see this type of handbag in your shop! Tame

    The shape is gorgeous! I love the shape. The only thing I cannot tell from the picture is what type of closure is being used.

    The option for different kinds of closures would be nice (zipper, magnetic snap, loop and button, etc.) both on the main compartment and the outer pocket.

    Other than that, it looks like it would be a hawt pattern!!!!!

    Love it! I’d like to see a sample in “classy” fabrics to show how versatile the pattern is. Great job!

    what a fantastic bag, you could use a pinstripe fabric one for work, and a hip print one for every day, satin for going out,the options are endless.It takes a good quality design to be this flexible,congratulations, cant wait to see the pattern!!!

    closure important, but also maybe a wider strap?

    This is a great looking purse. I would love it if you would email me when the pattern is available.

    I am also cruising blogs this morning and came across yours. It’s a great blog and one I’ve bookmarked.
