So, I've just completed the 7th bag so far in my life (for no reason, I started counting them today)...this make me a really experienced sewer, I guess!  Grin   I call it Chiara because it's the name of the friend I made the bag for.
First time making a "Jordy" (that's incredible I didn't try it yet, I know), and also topstitching and using a zigzag stitch for sewing the applique. I planned to sew a little pocket on the inside, but I totally forgot in the making of it   Roll Eyes 
Any opinions are welcome!

That's great! I like the contrast lining, especially the handle part.

Where did you get that awesome print fabric??!

Beautiful!  Where is the fabric from?  It looks kind of like a Japanese woodcut.

Lucky Chiara!

Thank you all!  Cheesy
The applique fabric is actually a piece I cutted from a vintage tapestry sampler catalog (I accumulated those catalogs from shops over the years, some of the fabrics are really awesome, ranging from the seventies to the nineties). The texture of this one looks like a wallpaper, with reliefs...if you touch the fabric you can sense different "levels" on it (don't know how to explain best, sorry!), and the fabric is really thick.
Sewer Rat, me also thinked about Japan seeing it! Smiley
Oh, and Kate, I saw your website and is full of interesting things! I am impressed by your flower bag, it's really professional and advanced! Wish I could sew like that Shocked
