This is part of a Christmas gift to my best friend Jes.  I'm going to put all the other stuff I got her in the bag and wrap it up.  I followed Burda pattern #8235, and found it fairly easy to follow (for a somewhat beginner).  This is actually my second bag from this pattern, the first was from a simple cotton and I use it all the time, though it's not as sturdy as this one.

The black is a stretch twill and the lining is calico.

I have to finish the button on the little purse & I left off the tab (I didn't like how it looked), but I wanted to post what I'd done on that so far as well.

really nice!  I just finished a messenger bag myself without using a pattern, its just a Jordy with a flap, and I like it, but yours is way better, so professional.  And that calico on the inside is great, love the pattern.

Thanks!  I just realized that you can't see that I did contrasting topstitching with a cream color that matches the bag.

Your purse looks great! I made a bag for my sis for Christmas with that same pattern, using a little mermaid sheet & some solid fabric and you're right, it is very easy to follow. The only thing I would have changed is putting interfacing though out the whole bag, instead of just the flap. It would give the cotton fabric / bag more shape.

I agree.  The first practice one I made was just cotton and it is very floppy.  The weightier fabric of this one helped, though.

Happy Holidays!
