LOVE IT!  What kind of fabric is that--the stripey one...(I'm fabric obsessed...)

i just noticed the "grow" in the middle of the tree...very clever detail Smiley  Your color combo is very satisfying as well, very warm...

Oh no, I'm a big fan of topstitching!  Definitely a sign of quality  Smiley  I usually top stitch, especially the handles, for strength (I really like it as a decorative element too though)...this fabric holds its shape really nicely though so I thought I'd like to see what would happen without it this time.  My friend eva took it (I made her one for herself) on a series of road/plane trips and it held up well...my bag has been to four western states!!!  Yeaaah! 

Thank you all very much for the feedback... Smiley

Yeah I'll second that compliment on the pockets...good work, just thinking about trying to sew a bunch of little pockets on my machine makes me want to throw something...you will be a fine addition to the realm of the wallet-makers...!

Wow, really nice finishing work/detail re: the topstitching and crispness of the lines.  I like the shape of the flap too, it is a simple but not usual shape so it gives the bag a really unique personality of its own...

Thanks much, here goes on the more pics tip! :

The construction was pretty much the same as gloriana's tutorial...I lined it with the same fabric as is on the outside...no topstitching because the fabric was nice and sturdy and didn't really need it, and I wanted my lines cleeeeean.  The army green part is twill, the flowered part is stretch cotton.

Tho' mine is without pocket, I am happy with the result...I took care to line it, in honor of my grandmother, a woman obsessed with lining as a sign of quality Smiley  And it's sturdy, let's hear it for twill.  I'd never sewed with it before but it was an easy, forgiving fabric to work with...

                       

Now I'm going to go pore back over that messenger with gusset tutuorial by "gloriana"...which rocks...
