So, I had a nice long weekend. My usual distraction was out of town, so I had to keep myself busy for once - crafting was involved.

Lookie at the purty new bag!!


 

I love it. I used this (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178244.0) pattern. This is my second attempt as this tutorial, but I didn't include the zipper before. I also went a bit more light on pleating this time and increased the size. I wanted a more duffel bag sort of feel.



My cellphone fits perfectly in the handy pockets.



And the inside is nice & roomy. The lining and outside fabric (with the print) is actually brown and white...even though it seems a bit more black in the pictures (trust me - it is a very deep brown). If I do this pattern again I am going to add inside pockets.

So cute. I really love the contrast between the brown and white print and the deep red trim.

Thanks for all the great comments everyone! I am really proud of how this one turned out.

Just a note, you can't really tell from the picture but the red fabric is actually a fine suede. Which works so well with the pleated bags if you give it a go.
