Yeah, that is an awkward title, but that essentially is what this purse is.
Several months ago my baby sister told the family that she was getting a divorce. I wanted to give her something cheery, an "I'm thinking of you" sort of present. So I made this purse.
I didn't have a pattern, but I did base it on about a billion photos of vintage bowling bags and all the patterns that have come out for them lately. Her favorite color is pink and I had this fabric in the stash.
I discovered making this bag that I need to practice the whole piping thing. Yeah, that took several tries to get right. I used plastic canvas covered in fabric to make the bottom a little stiffer than the heavy interfacing I used throughout. I was trying to find little feet for the bottom of the bag, but the local shops didn't have 'em and I didn't care enough to mail order them.
I think it turned out pretty cute. I want one!
