This post may end up sounding like one giant disclaimer, but oh well. The idea for this purse came from Noodlehead's new 241 Tote, which I love. Really love. I kind of prefer bags with two straps though and I wanted to make sure the dimensions would fit my laptop so I decided to make one similar to it on my own.
See my beautiful sketch of what I wanted it to look like?
I'm happy with how it turned out, although as Hubs pointed out the fabric is pretty "loud," which is out of character for me. I originally wanted the side pockets to hold a water bottle too but due to
Lipgloss also fits, but I rarely wear or carry it...there just happened to be a tube sitting next to my picture-taking spot.
I hope you like it. I'm just excited all of the pieces fit together! Hubs couldn't stop laughing when I told him I used the Pythagorean Theorem to figure out the size of the triangles. Am I really that nerdy? How else do you make sure all of the sides are proportional? Feel free to laugh along with him because I guess I am that nerdy. So here's what you do after you finish laughing:
- a - Don't hate me for making something similar to something someone else made, I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder I just needed 2 straps.
- b - Leave a comment telling me you don't hate me / you don't think my purse looks as bad as the sketch of my purse.
- Go order Noodlehead's 241 Tote Pattern so
I don't feel bad about not buying oneyou can make your own that looks more professional and can carry more than lipgloss in the side pocket.
- Have a wonderful week!
