Bag #1: Ladybug Mini Purse!

This is the first ladybug design I made. I was at the beach on vacation with my family. Yes, I even take my sewing machine with me on vacation.
At the time, I just wanted a pouch for my flip cell phone and keys. I drew a few ideas out and then set to work. The original top zipper worked great with the flip phone but as I upgraded my phone I realized I need to make the zipper opening larger. So I moved the zipper to the side and the rest is history.
The fabrics are a Dab of Jazz by Gail Fountain and Maywood Studios. I tried to make the lines on the fabrics to look as if they were one continuous piece. This Ladybug Mini Purse will be shipped off to Simplicity this week along with 4 other beautiful creations!
More sneak peeks to come...

It's awesome that you will be in the Simplicity catalog! I cannot wait to 'geek' out in the store when I see your pattern(s) in the book :)
