Birthday Bag

For my birthday last Sunday, I went on strike... So I spent the evening sewing! And I ended up with this- a new handbag. The pattern is from Amy Butler and can be found here ! While I do love the pattern, I made a few adjustments (actually, I followed the pattern for the exterior, and while I used the pattern pieces for the lining, I added and took away from that on my own). And the handbag is a bit on the small side. I guess b/c I'm used to carring a larger tote or satchel purse, this just seems small to me, although all of my normal purse stuff fits in there just fine! I may just redo it using the shoulder bag patter :P I even have enough of the fabs left to do it in the same ones... hmm maybe I should reverse the print and polka dot? :D
