I made a purse for a swap and i fell in love with it!
I was waiting to find the perfect fabric to make one for myself when i realized i had this alexander henry fabric with frida kahlo prints on it! IM A HUGE FAN OF FRIDA KAHLO... so.. i thought it was the perfect opportunity.

this is what came out



the inside with lots of pockets and stripes to separate sections (i even put a secret pocket... i bet you cannot find it)


and... with stuff on it. I made a special kind of pocket to keep my stethoscope in place (i'm a med student)
btw, have you found the secret pocket yet? i made it to keep my girly stuff

hint: you can just see a line.

and an action shot:


comments, critiques, please tell me what do you think because i'm seriously in love with it. And so are my friends.

Ok, so you are seriously in love with it.
I can see why because I am madly in love with it!

Magnificent fabric you've selected for this gorgeous bag.
Great job on your lining.  You put a lot of pockets in your lining, but you & I both know there is NO such thing as too many pockets  Smiley

Thank you for sharing this.  I really love it.
