Fashion Show Rebel

A friend of mine will be attending a fashion show / autism fundraiser next weekend and commissioned a "trailer chic" bag to carry. To mock the fashion industry, and to make the event more fun, she plans to wear all black, with fuschia accessories and shoes, and to carry a life-like stuffed puppy in this purse.

I hope she finds this bag suitable-- she didn't give me many parameters to work within. (Such freedom is almost more worrisome than explicit instructions.)

This was my first time working with vinyl, which kept things interesting. The pattern is by RileyProject and was clear and simple, though the shape requires much pinning.


  1. I think that bag is beautiful..what a great job you did..

  2. I like the design a lot, it's really different.
