I have a friend who is a flight attendant and she told me to NEVER put my Weekender bag thru as luggage, that I would never see it again. 

Your bag is simply gorgeous, striking, and you certainly did a beautiful job on it!  Here's a small tip for sewing in the lining.  Take a few stitches here and there on seam lines, inside, to keep the lining up flat against the inside, it will tend to droop a bit, otherwise. 

My interior fabric is mostly black, so I actually had to put a lamp down inside my bag so I could see what I was doing.  It never occured to me to use my headlamp thingie that I use when I cut the doggies' toenails!  That would have been a lot easier!   Roll Eyes

Sleahy - you can also check out u-handblog, which has free patterns (I like them)

looks like you really payed attention to detail. This bag looks awesome! Great job on the piping.

I love the red against the fabric.  I think the piping looks great.

Don't make me release the flying monkeys.
