Hi all,
I was in the make a purse and fill it swap.  This is the bag I made for my swap partner (she has already received it, so I guess it is ok to post).
It is a purchased pattern with a few tweaks.


This is the front of the bag.  The small pocket has a design that I hand embroidered with variegated thread.  I wanted it to imitate the circles in the patterned fabric.  The main brown fabric is a fine-wale corduroy that I just love.  I also added the swivel hook to the handle to clip on keys or a reusable bag.


Fuzzy closeup of the embroidery.  Sorry it is not a good shot, but it is the only one I have.


Back of bag.  I opted to not add the small pocket on this side as I wanted to let the circle patterned fabric to show more.


Inside of bag.  I am not sure why it looks like there is a wrinkle in the lining as there really isn't.

Anyway, that is the bag.  I have made this pattern for myself with the same corduroy only in orange.  I added interfacing to this bag as I thought it might be nice with a little more body.  It is a fun bag to make.
