I essentially made this bag up as I went along, and I didn't have any experience sewing them (successfully).
The outside is an upholstery pattern and I added padding and interfacing so it's very solid, which I like. 
One thing that I did not realize about the pattern when I bought the (small and oddly sized) bolt of fabric was that the lattice pattern was not at 90degree angles.  The vertical ones are perpendicular to the selvages, but the horizontal ones are actually slightly angled.
On to the pics I guess!

working with askew fabric always is a challenge and you managed to tame it very well  Grin The size looks perfect!

You did a beautiful job on your purse.  Love the pattern.

I REALLLLLYYY like that bag!  I love the lattice and love the style!  The sides look semi-triangular...with a zip top?  I would love to try one similar!

Thanks for sharing!
