new pattern: the favorite bag

well here it is. finally. that bag i made for myself and the one everyone keeps asking for a pattern. i meant to get this done earlier this week, but believe me when i say i've been busy with unexpected circumstances. more on that later. i have to give it a little bit of time before i find the humor in things...but when i do, boy do i have a story to tell you.
but for now please check out my pattern. you can buy the down loadable version here. it includes the lovely flower as well.

what i love about this bag:
-it's big enough to carry everything you need
-it's not huge so you don't end up carrying your kitchen sink in it.
- you can wear it with jeans.
-you can wear it with dressy clothes.
-it's just plain cute.
-i get compliments whenever i use it.

so you want to make one too? buy your instructions here.

or if you don't want to make the bag but just want to learn to make the flower buy the instructions here.

thank you much. i'm going to take a little bloggy break till tuesday. have a fantabulous memorial weekend!
we'll talk soon.

I love this purse and it would make a great birthday gift for my girlfriend. Does it have a zipper closure or just a snap?

I love it. What a darling purse. :o) And especially with the pretty flower.
I enjoyed reading about your experience at Market. I have not known much about it and then seeing the picture with all those people - holy cow! I want to go!
Have a great weekend.
Sincerely ~ Tricia

V!!! i just ordered the pattern :) i was in Ogunquit, Maine this Memorial Day weekend, and i saw a girl with a cute bag- very similar to this style- in amy butler fabric. at that exact moment i thought to myself, i hope Vanessa put a pattern up so that maybe by the time i get home from vacation i will have one to order and i can whip one up this week, and, just like magic, i'm back, and the pattern has arrived! you're awesome!
