I've had this idea in my head for a while, so a couple of weekends ago I just sat down and did it. 



I used a checked suiting material bought from the remnants bin (from my stash) for the outer and 2 cotton tea towels for the lining.  The rings for the handles come from a set of curtain rings.


There are 2 patch pockets and a divider with a zippered pocket inside.  I just kind of winged-it for the divider, but I'm pretty happy with the result.

I like the style of this and I really like that you used suiting fabric (or whatever you'd call it) for this!

Fantastic, classy looking bag. I love the way you attached the handles. Great pockets and fabrics.

very cute and classy, looks like something you could pick up at american eagle for an overhyped price (I really mean this is the best wat possible, I promise!)

I love you bag. I so want to make myself one like that but I'm having no luck finding a similar fabric.
