I however am planning on from now on calling it a hip purse.
I am not too sure why they are classified as daggy, perhaps it was the way they were worn on the 80's. but they are actually rather useful and as I mentioned I am in need of a useful hip purse, So I made myself one.
It is far from perfect but for now it will do the job and for a 1st with no pattern it turned oiut pretty close to plan.
Ignore the poor quality photo's they were taken with my phone and it is dark so lighting wasn't the best.
The stripes are actually really bright orange, pink and yellow.
