My Mum saw my first attempt at Oh Fransson's Margaret Bag (http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2008/11/margaret-sling-bag.html) a few weeks ago and asked if I could make one for her Birthday but with a zip, so I came up with this! I simply added in panels for the zip in the top seam of the bag which works very well!
I've used a heavy linen effect brown cotton for the outer and lined it with a polka dot cotton. I also took the opportunity to try my hand at a fabric flower (http://sewritzytitzy.blogspot.com/2008/11/from-annas-gardenfabric-flower-tutorial.html) which I've seen many lovely examples of on here recently!

The bag with the fabric flower (I added a brooch pin to the back of the flower so it can be re-positioned)


The zip closure and polka dot lining!

Sorry for the not too great pics!

I like that pattern - I have it printed off downstairs so I can make one Smiley  Yours came out really pretty, and I like the added zipper and the flower embellishment - very nice!  I'm sure your mom will love it Smiley
