Hermes inspired bag in My Creative Space!

I've been busy working on a new bag pattern this week. Here's how the first one turned out:

I was inspired by this bag I saw a couple of days ago on the Yahoo website:

Mine isn't quite the same - but I do like it! And it cost a lot less than the Hermes version which is set to sell for nearly $2million!!

I've still got to work on the details  - the handle particularly isn't quite right yet...

But that's the fun of pattern making - solving those tricky problems and finding the best way to explain it all!
Watch this space for the completed pattern and tutorial coming soon!

  1. Great bag Jill!! Your photos look really good too.

    when I first saw the Hermes bag I thought it was made of chocolate, but I guess solid gold is good too, lol.

    Michelle :o)

    1. Thanks Michelle! Mmm...a chocolate version! Great idea!!

  2. It's gorgeous, Jill! $2 million..whatevs...yours is priceless...

  3. That is a cute bag. Stopping by to say hello from the Creating Success Around the World Blog Hop

  4. Love your metallic mesh creation - looks tricky to work with a material like that! It came out very elegant, I think, what a great party bag.
