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.
