For the Enchanted Forest swap my partner, Stellou, requested a bag. And on her pinterest I saw a very nifty looking yoga bag. So I drafted my own pattern and got to work on my first bag ever! She also loves Green man, so I decided to appliqu a green man on the front of the bag, with vines going down the straps made to hold the yoga mat. The bag has an adjustable strap and I added a pocket on the inside, with a carbine hook and a strap for keys and such. I then changed the "handle" pull tab on the zipper to a nicer one with beads. I also made two little flowers on the back, to make it a more versatile bag Smiley Cue photobombing:



The front




The back of the bag



The beaded "handle" (what do you call that thing?) on the zipper pull tab



A look of the lining and inside pocket

CC always very welcome! Expecially since I'm not very used to making bags...

Very lovely bag you made.

I have just always called it a zipper pull tab. Google search tells me I have been right.  Grin You might call it a zipper pull tab "fob", for the decoration part.

Nice collection of designs with the flowers on the back, and adding her interests into the mix {yoga and Green man} And the little gnomes and dragons and fairies on the inside are cute, too!
