This is most definitely the most advanced bag I've ever made:


Although many people who've seen it, think that it's made of suede, it is actually made of awesome furniture fabric  Wink.
There's a pocket on the front, a big zippered pocket at the back, and two small pockets inside for my wallet and calculator.


here's a picture to show the size. I have to carry a lot of stuff around at school so it's quite big.

the lining (and also the contents of my bag Tongue)


a charm or whatever it may be called.

Great bag! Is that furniture fabric microfiber? I have a couch made of that and even ball-point pen washes out of it! Good choice for a purse.

Thank you people  Cheesy

Bastelmutti: I have no idea! The sign in the fabric store just said that it's furniture material, nothing else.

Amo: I drew it myself but I had inspiration  Wink

Fantastic!  The shape of the bag is great!  And your embroidery skills are amazing!

thank youu! Smiley

I did use a pattern, but it was an altered version of the rounder roomy bag. I actually just used a couple of tutorials that have been posted here and just threw them together (for the record- I used the rounder roomy bag tutorial, zipper pocket tutorial and took the zippered top tutorial from Tinafish's amazing hobo bag tute).
But if you'd like a full tutorial, then I could most probably do it (like with pictures and things),but I'm not really sure when, because school stuff is taking up so much time  Sad I need to craft gosh darnit!  Grin
