I whipped this up pretty quickly this weekend. It's a gift for my best friend. We went shopping at the mall and I noticed two things: she loves green and she loves polka dots. Yay for fabric stash!! I also included two zippered pouches because I forgot to put pockets on the inside. I used decor bond interfacing so it's really really sturdy. The lining on the inside is white with little lilac colored polka dots.



Here's a closeup of the embroidery with her nickname:


And a pic of the pouches!!
