very nice, I really like the pleat detail!  Did you do the seaming on the body fabric and the edge too-the texture is great!

I bought the fabric with this texture, I just made the big pleat at the center, not the waves.

thank you! I haven' t sewn a lot the faux leather, 5-6 times only...most of them it was hard, it's thick, difficult to handle and unforgiving material. But this one was really easy, I didn' t even change the needle of my machine!
Hey, I just looked at your purses, they are all very pretty.... I love very very much that pleated clutch of yours, from Vogue pattern!
Thanks for commenting:)

You've got awesome shape to your bags!  I love this one. Smiley  I think the pleating detail makes it look awesome.

Thank you so much, you give me courage....I' m new to bag making:) It is the pleat that creates the shape,  or else it would be a plain rectangle.
