After coming across some awesome fabric, I decided it would make a great purse. I found a Simplicity pattern I liked and got busy! I lengthened the straps by 4 inches so I could wear the bag over my shoulder, and I put the interfacing on the outer fabric instead of on the lining like the pattern called for.
The tessellated green/brown corduroy I found on sale at walmart for $1.50 a yard! The brown satin lining was also that cheap. I used some medium-weight Pellon fusible interfacing on the backside of the corduroy.
The results are in! Check out our winning submission.
