Saggy Middles Unite!


In honor of one of Amanda's latest purse creations, I decided to make this! She had a little problem with a saggy middle, as she put it. So, I figured I would just embrace the saggy middle and run with it! This bag is huge - the bottom measures 21" and the top is 13". It is about 11" tall. The long strap is adjustable (thanks Lee!).

Here is a closeup of my fabric, which has been in the stash for years just waiting for its moment in the sun.

And here it is in all its slouchy saggy goodness. This bag fits a ton of stuff! In this picture it has all of my normal purse contents and could hold much more. With the long shoulder strap that can fit across me, I'm thinking this would be the perfect flea market/garage sale shopping purse.

I love it! it is so fantastic!!! now why doesn't the saggy middle look so good on my purse??? There is also something to be said for a nice big bag.
I love the brown stripe down the front too, it's the perfect touch to your fabulous new bag!

Except for mine, this is my favorite. Sagging is all good. You'll realize that in time.
