These are probably my favorites so far! (And Barb, I think I have figured out the PERFECT scripture bag size so I'll use the last fabric you gave me and make it this size!) My new favorite purse! I saw a girl at Noodles on Monday with a similar design and came home and made it! My problem with the scripture bags was I was making them too small! The unfinished size of my original bags is 18"x18" and this one is only 14"x14" so I was over-estimating how much I'd need to shrink it! M saw my blue and green bag and said she "needed" a princess purse. I wasn't sure what I was going to make her with this fabric anyway, so here you go. She woke up from her nap when I'd finished it and was appropriately thrilled, hands clasped together, "oh, mein dosh!" So cute!
This one I embellished with grosgrain ribbon and used a fusible interfacing on fabric for the inside to see how it worked. It was great and makes the smaller bags so much less bulky!
