Edited for link failure...

this is based off of a traditional Japanese carenters work bag.  But the interfacing in it makes the top two corners to stiff to tie in the "traditional" manner, so I put a strap on it.

It's made from Chinese brocade and lined in a black taffeta.

Opinions? Critique?

I don't have interior shots and this particular bag no longer belongs to me.

there was a line drawing of the pattern in a book on Sashiko (the embroidery used for fabric reinforcement/quilting in Japan)

But that was for an unlined bag with no strap.

The base bag is a rectangle three times as long as it is wide an two squares (in the picture the triangle at the top of the bag is one of those square folded in half to act as reinforcement.

I'm just trying to figure something out.  I've had some less than stellar in person opinions of the bag design in general (freakish excuse for a tote bag kind of remarks) and I had the picture of this one from a swap I had shipped for so I thought I would get opinions.

Thank you for the kind words.

Usually these folks (the ones who were critical) aren't without a reason.  I wanted to be sure I wasn't staring at something wrong and not seeing it.

Thanks guys.
