I LOVE this fabric!

The first bag for my first order is finished! I'm really pleased with it. I absolutely love this batik fabric; I just wish it would go on sale!

This is the same design I used for this bag but I lengthened the straps at the customers request.
Here are the dimensions:
Straps: 15.5 inch drop, 33 inches from end to end.
End to end: 14.5 inches from seam to seam along top, 10.5 inches along bottom
From zipper to base of bag: appx. 8 inches
Pocket: 7 inches x 4 inches

Sherequested a pocket in the front for her sunglasses (there is a velcro closure) and a zipper to keep all her goodies safe inside the purse. This is the first purse zipper I've done and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Although it was quite time consuming it wasn't difficult, thanks to Google I found a fantastic tutorial on adding zippers to purses over at Enthral.

I hope the new owner loves it! Now on to the matching Little Bits Bag she wants for inside!
