Bow Bag {AKA Another Anthro Rip-Off}

This is another copy of a copy. The original is from Anthropologie and retails for $498.00! However, Leslie from The Little Apple Seed made a great pattern for a cute knock-off:

And the best part about making it yourself? (Besides not spending $498.00?) You can customize your pockets! I like having a velcroed pocket for my lady stuff:

And I made a special one for my phone, lipsticks, a pen and other incidentals:

I really like this bag, but I made it from linen, which doesn't give it much shape. I'm considering going back and ripping up a little so that I can put in some interfacing to make some of it a little stiffer. All in all, Leslie did a great job making a pattern for this. I LOVE her idea for faux piping!

I will be linking up to these great parties!
