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.

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