I made this bag as part of the make a purse and fill it swap
Purses are one of my favorite things to make and I had a lot of fun putting this one together. This purse is made from an original pattern and it has a magnetic closure.

The front of the bag: It has two outside pockets on the front. 


The back:


The inside lining: The inside has a zippered, pocket that was padded. It was designed to hold my partner's eReader.


A little picture of show off the strap. The strap has a little slider so that it can be adjusted and worn as a shoulder purse or an across the body bag.

That is super cute!!  Did you use a fusible fleece or something?  I have a bunch of that brocade but it's a bit hard to sew with!

Thank-you. The brocade was kind of difficult to sew, because it had a tendency to run Sad. I did not use any fusibles, but I learned the hard way not to trim down the edges of the fabric after sewing.  Instead I ended up cutting the fabric a good inch and a half larger than required for the pattern and ironing down the edges without trimming before turning  the pieces right-side-out. Kind of a pain, but the fabric was so pretty it was worth it.  Wink It is much more shiny in real life.
