Sling Bag

I have been wanting to make one for quite some time but could not find the right pattern. I have the big fancy purses for work but hate lugging them around on the weekends or when I go to a festival, fair or quilt show (which I have been going to a lot)
So finally, I found this Tranquility panel in my stash and thought it would be cute for a bag.

So after searching for a purse pattern...... I made my own!

And this is the inside with a cute little pocket.

Then I just cut a curve where I knew the sides would be. It's actually harder to explain
than to just do. I wish I knew how to give instructions because it really only took me about an hour. The red fabric was cut 4" wide.

And the straps are finished at 2" which means I cut it at 4 1/4 for the fold over and seem allowance.
Doesn't this look like something you would find at Target?  Thanks for looking!
