I really liked the Coach Isabelle bag.. soooo.. tried to recreate it.. here are the results





My main goal in making this bag was to do the hidden vertical pocket. Without the zipper pulll, the pocket is completely hidden





Inside


And the coach bag for reference

That looks great. You did a fabulous job recreating it. The hidden pocket is very well done and very clever.

Thanks everyone!  I love how it turned out, but there were challenges in the construction, which I would like to figure out a better way.

That's fantastic!  What'd you use for the silver bit on the front?

That's a metal label.  I bought them from Emmaline Bags online store.  it says "handmade".  I love them, adds a nice touch to bags.
