I made this over the weekend.



It's from Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter; a wonderful book I really recommend.  I only want to make every project in it.  I modified the pattern ever so slightly; I made the interior pocket much bigger and made the straps long enough to put over my shoulder.  I also added a light weight interfacing to give it more structure.  I love the way it came out and may be making them for Christmas presents.

Very cute!  And I love how the straps and piping are a "louder" print; it contrasts nicely with the more understated body fabric.

I really like your color choices.  I think that adding the interfacing was a good decision.  Great Job!
