Alright y'all I saw this bag http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=15216&itemType=PRODUCT&iSubCat=354&iMainCat=336
on the anthropologie website and fell in love with it... However #1 I couldn't see paying for it #2 it was REALLY gigantic and #3 I'm always trying to reduce my stash of stuff- so here is what I came up with.

front

inside ( not done stitching in the lining yet because my machine must be on vacation or something..

and detail of top/handles


The differences are that mine is only about 3/4 of the size and the brown is a soft heavy weight felt, not leather.
Anyway, I felt it came out pretty nice especially for winging it w/out a pattern- and then when I actually saw the real thing in the store I was pretty amazed at how close my version came out.
If only all my projects came out this well! Total cost: $3.16 for brown zipper.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
