This bag is fresh out of the oven. I madly sewed it from start to finish last night after work.
I'll get more pictures up as soon as I have the chance [I had the chance]. I'm sneaking this post up while sitting in a workshop for my job. Shhh.
I'm just a tad in love with my recycled recycle bags. It's a great message. It's funky and cheeky (just like Alice the Fairy, a darling little book that is somewhere in my house and is currently refusing to be found [I found it!]).
It has two back pockets, one small side pocket, and two inside pockets. It's a bit smaller than the other bags - about 11" x 10" x 3.5". Still a very roomy purse.
The lengthy 51" strap can be shortened by tying the knot differently.

I thought we needed a better picture of the back of the bag, as well as proof that I really do have this book. So, my daughter fixed my hair up and took the picture of me reading on the front step.
The updated photos above were taken by my talented li'l sis, the Informal Matriarch. They're still kinda driving me nuts. The purple on the flap and inside the bag isn't coming out right. I would describe it as a lilac or mauve, definitely less blue than the pics show (on my PC).
