This is essentially the same design as the last bag I made (Girly Girl Pink Polka Dot on Purple) but I made it longer, used different fabric, added the magnetic clasp and made the handles differently.  Here's the bio on Leo (and yes I will be making more to sell if you are interested, tee hee):

Outer fabric is a lightweight denim, leopard print (see detail below) which I added black trim around the bottom.  Basic square bottom (like Jordy), with thick hard interfacing to make the bottom hard.  I also added silver metal legs to the bottom for support.  Small D-Rings attach the matching handles which is many layers folded over of the outer fabric.  The lining is different...it's a tan colored type of fabric similar to canvas you use to cover outside chairs.  I don't have a clue as to what it is called because I picked it up at Walmart last year sometime.  Inner pocket inside has matching fabric to outside.  I LOVE THIS BAG!!!  Cheesy  Do you think $40 is asking too much for this puppy?

Not at all. It's gorgeous, and very high-fashion. I wouldn't even sell it.  Cheesy

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

Well, I decided to keep this one and am making another one or two to sell.  Cheesy  I want to do a little advertising since it's been a while since I've carried a bag I've made.

i saw the subject line and thought it said 'LFO' instead of 'LEO' and i freaked out cause i sure do love 90s boybands.

nevertheless, i was not at all disappointed when i opened the post and it wasn't LFO. beauuuttiiifffuuuul ll bag.
