Well, I'm not sure it's waterproof, but it's made out of 'waxed fabric' ( I have no idea what it would actually be called in English).

I bought the fabric, just a cheap left-over, about a year ago, and feel stupid for not making anything out of it yet! The fabric is kinda stiff, so it's easy to sew with, and I kept it pretty simple anyway.

I like the clean look, but feel like somethings missing...maybe a little strap sticking out as a loop in one end or something...any ideas?

Thanks for looking Cheesy

I think that it is simply wonderful!!  It looks beautiful just the way it is, great job!!  Sometimes simple is best, the color of the zipper just makes the fabric **POP**--always wanted to say that Grin---

I love it! That fabric is fab, and you did an excellent job!
I think adding a strap to it would be good too.

I really like that, and the contrasting zipper really makes it look special. I think it's great as is! (I am a fan of clean & simple, and I like the shape)

I'm usually not into sequins and beads, but I think it'd be cool if you hand sewed one of the two onto the little black dots. . .

I personally like it without straps. But the fabric and the actual bag are so cute I really don't think you could mess it up! Nice job Smiley

I love the color combinations of green and purple and the fabric is pretty rocking too!

I think that maybe a beaded charm on the zipper pull would give it the missing *zing*. Maybe you could use a combination of green and purple beads to further the great color duo?

That kind of fabric is called 'oil cloth' in America.
Looks great!  I would like a wrist strap on it, personally. 

Good job!
