Hi!

I made a new bag, just for ME  Smiley
For my birthday I got this pretty fabric from my SIL and I decided to make a new bag for work. I drafted a simple pattern and started from there.

Here's a picture of the front of the bag:


I used the tree-fabric for the outside of the bag. The flower is detachable, it is a pin.
My SIL also bought pretty cotton band, you can cut it in pieces and use the pieces as an embelishment. I used a piece on the front of the bag as you can see, but also in the seam of the bag. I like that kind of details.  Cheesy

The backside:


I used the other fabric on the inside and also made a pocket of it on the backside.

A topview:


A zipper, with fabric zipper pull. This is the other fabric too. Not so clearly on the pic...
The strap is adjustable and I used the cotton band for the loops.

The inside of the bag:


Not so easy to take a picture and show the inside  Wink
A zippered pocket, a nice welt pocket with zipper - proud of that!!
And I added a label with my name in there. The other side of the bag has a simple pocket to hold my phone.

And a last pic, a close up of the cotton band I used to make a nice label:


Hard to see, but it says: Original & Handmade

Thanks for looking!
Questions, comments or whatever are welcome!  Cheesy Critique too  Wink

Thanks, Yoopidou, kaz and CMB!  Cheesy

I took it to work with me today and it is just perfect! The right size (huge), pretty and comfortable to carry around too.

My SIL picked out these fabrics, with me and my style in mind! She did a great job!  Smiley

Thanks a lot ladies, I appreciate your comments!
