Dragon Bag

Front of bag, fussy cut for maximum dragon showing


Back of bag. I didn't have enough fabric to put a full dragon on the back, so I did a patch pocket of a dragon face. Handy for my metro card!


Well, I have used the bag for a week or two, and it just isn't good for me. It is really pretty and if I didn't haul so much crap around all the time, I would love it. But I really need something bigger for my daily bag. I need to fit my lunch, purse junk, and a book for the metro and this just ain't cutting it.

I made it from Nicole Mallalieu's Sling bag pattern. Her pattern instructions are really super, and I love how she gives lots of design options for you to personalize your bag. I would absolutely recommend the pattern.

I am not sure whether to keep this one as an occasional bag or give it away to someone who will use it more. I love this fabric and I don't have much more of it....

I love this bag! I think you should give it to me, lol. In all honesty, if you really like it, you should keep it as an occasional bag.

I hear you on the junk riding the metro. I've never carried a lot of things in a purse, and my purse is small now and I've got a wallet, book and lipstick case in it, and it's still mostly empty.

I love your fabric!! If it was me, I'd be totally selfish and keep it. Or find an excuse to use it more. ;)

The fabric is fantastic!
I love the bag...I would totally keep it and use it just for those day/nights when you need just the bare essentials.

Great bag! You could use it for special occasions.

It is really cute! I would have a hard time giving it up. But, I have a bit of a purse addiction. And a shoe addiction. And a clothing addiction. And a fabric addiction. Need I go on?
