I've made 2 of these previously, and worn them totally out. (Very distressing.)
But, in making your own bags, you can always make another one.
This is the pattern envelope:
Here's a pic of one that I'd already worn out.
The primary problem with this pattern is that the lining goes all the way up the handle. That wears out first. (On the one that is just above, the "applique" was starting to come off, too)
But I thought that if I didn't put the lining all the way up the handle, and instead used the outer fabric, then maybe it'd not wear out so quickly.
This shows a small part of the outer fabric going up the handle, but it also shows the Key Leash that I put into it.
Another photo of the "other side" of the purse. You still can't see the outer fabric going up the handle very well, but sort of
And, here's the Zipper Pocket I added.
And here it is, ready to go:
An advantage of having the outer fabric go all the way up the handle is that the bag even FEELS sturdy.
