Hi all, been awhile since I've posted in here.  Anyhow, I finished this bag today and it came out so neat.  I have several yards of suit fabric and paired it up with a pretty flowery blue fabric.  It brings out the light blue thread in the suit fabric.  Whatcha' think? 

matching key fob, and you can see the suit fabric up close

padded pockets inside, and zippered pocket too, I finally figured that zipper stuff out!  woo hoo, LOL

I love this!  The fabrics are perfect together.  And I covet that blue floral.  Do you know the maker/name?

Again, gorgeous job!

Love this bag!

Now that I am out of the corporate world, I can recycle all those stuffy suits into something more "me"!

You did a lovely job pairing your fabrics!

Thank you and thanks everyone!

That blue floral fabric is Heidi Grace Designs-midnight kisses - exclusively made for JoAnn fabrics.  It was on sale, I should have bought more Smiley

As far as suit fabric, I think it works great for bags.  You have to watch very carefully when you're putting your fabric together, since there are lines.  You definitely don't want to get it crooked or it looks wonky.
