Flirty Skirt Bag

I was over at my grandma's house, she's a sewing enthusiast, looking through some of her stuff and found a pattern, well, instructions for this adorable bag. I wanted a new cute bag to take all my Young Women's stuff to church in, so I decided to make it. It is called the "FLIRTY SKIRT" bag. There is also a pattern for a smaller purse, whereas this is the larger tote, but that one turns out pretty small I'm told. This is about the size my regular purse is. I need a little bigger one for all the junk I tote around. My next project is to make one for my mom. I'm using brown and teal for hers.

I think it is adorable with that ruffle around the bottom. The instructions were a little confusing, but I figured it out, and I experimented on a few things, but they turned out pretty good!

(That's my daughter's pajama pants you see in the background on the picture below! She wanted to be in the picture and was saying "Cheese"!) Anyway, I added the little outline of the lining fabric on the top of the bag. I thought it added a cute touch.
The inside has nice big pockets...perfect for those pens I'm always losing and extra little booklets and handouts and stuff!

This was a fun project! It didn't take too long and it turned out really cute, and now that I know what I'm doing it will be even easier next time!
