Julie Bag

Wow!  I have neglected my blog!  Yes, I guess I did fall off the face of the earth for a while.  YIKES!  I really haven't been able to sew or do any sort of crafts for awhile.  That does not make me a happy person.
Anyway, this bag is made with a new pattern from the fantastic Swoon Patterns!  This is the second bag from the Vintage Pattern Subscription.  Called the Julie Bag.  So, far I love these vintage bag patterns!  I just realized that I haven't posted the bag I made from the first pattern in the subscription.  I love that bag, too!

I made a few very slight changes...I added a magnetic snap closure and I glued in a piece of Pellon 70 to the bottom to help the bag keep its shape. 
Oh, ya I added the bow, too.  I'm still not certain on the's removable.
I'm in love with the shape of this bag.  So cute!  
The pattern was easy to follow and went together quickly.  The only part that gave me trouble were the handles.  Mine didn't want to cooperate.  One just flat out refused to play nice, but I forced it to work in the end.  ;)
