FQ Sling Bag

I found this awesome tutorial from Laura of We Wilsons. I'm glad I downloaded it when I did (immediately) because it seems that there was so much interest in the pattern, she had to list it for sale on Etsy. It's still really affordable, and I probably would've bought it. The best part of the purse is that it only takes 2 fat quarters, a zipper and some D rings, all things I had. I've been promising my mom a "cute, beachy purse" (her words, not mine) since I saw her in November. I think this will do the trick:The fabric is Palm Beach by Michael Miller, in pink and green. I think I like the line better for clothing (or a purse) than I do for an entire quilt. Here's the inside:
This was the first time I successfully put a zipper on something. Really, this was a great tutorial because the finished product actually came out, and it seems really well constructed. Also, the size is perfect. Now I want to make a bunch of these-- I can see one for every day of the week!
