First bag ever! I followed the Jordy tutorial but used the variation someone mentioned about leaving the hole in the top of the bag, rather than the bottom corner.

The outer fabric is late 1960's, certainly before 1971 as it had a price tag for shillings still attatched. The lining is some poplin I had left over from a top.

That fabric is gorgeous  Shocked  Nice job on the Jordy, I love making them.  The lining makes the bag look really lush.  Great job

Thanks everyone! I wish you could see the fabric in real life, it almost glows.

Nice! I am making this bag right now. What exactly do you do with the strap? The folding stuff was confusing me, I'm not sure what she means to do.
