I was inpired by Beth's sling bag on her blog: http://stitchriprepeat.blogspot.com/ and took some time yesterday to take a stab at making one.  I used a stripey decorator fabric and a lighter weight brown woven.  I also tried out the fusible fleece for the interfacing and other than having a little trouble fighting with my machiune and a few bulky seems, I think I like it.

Both sides have the exterior brown pocket:

That is surely a unique design and nice choice of fabrics.  Who doesn't love brown.  I really like the detail of your stitching, really sets it apart from the rest.  Nice job!

I totally love this purse.  I have been on a purse streak myself and would love to post some of mine, but I'm new to forums and don't know how to post pictures. 

Anyways.  Til I figure it out...I love yours!
