So my brother's job requires him to travel all over the world (I hate him) and when he went through India he bought me a bunch of real silk fabrics there.  He gave me the material and his fiance gave me a bunch of purse handles for my birthday that just occured so I needed to make something awesome with what they gave me.  Which I believe that I did.

This is the outside of the bag obviously.  Its about 8" by 13" so its a nice size bag.

Close up of the handle.  Trying to figure out how to put this on was the biggest pain of my life.  Pictures a little blurry but you get the idea.  I hope.

Inside shot.  I wanted to use a magnetic closure for this bag but I couldn't find them at the fabric stores around my house so I just gave up because I was antsy to get started on this bag.  

I'm really happy with how this turned out and its easily one of my favorite bags that I've made so far.
