Oil Cloth Obsession

I am a big fan of 'oil cloth'.  I found this fabulous fabric at Hancock one day and had to buy it- which then meant I had to figure out something to make with it!  I figured I would make a basic bag that could be used to haul toys, or groceries, or anything else.  But, in true Amy fashion, I found a not-so-basic pattern and ended up making a purse instead.  I like the way it turned out.  But, when (not if, but when!) I make another one,  there are several things I will change about the pattern to make it more 'user friendly.'

The exterior of the purse is oil cloth.  The interior is lined with a fun blue paisley fabric that began as a sheet, but I loved the pattern too much to actually use as a sheet!  The interior has two decent sized pockets.  A fun and functional purple button gives the purse a little extra character!

What do you think?!  Leave a comment!

I looked for an ORANGE button, but couldn't find one.  I do really like the purple one, though!
