I love plaid! I can't help it.
This bag is my own design. I used reclaimed vintage fabric I found at the thrift store. Again, I used the faux suede from the remnant bin for the bottom of the bag and the strap. I'm online hunting for some more notions so I don't have to keep using these little purse snaps. Luckily it works for this bag, it's not as big as the old man bag. If anyone knows a good website that sells purse making supplies, please post a link, thanks!

This one's my fav, I used some vintage juvenile fabric for the inside of the front zipper pocket.

Well done. It reminds me of something you see with a school girl in uniform.  Wink
