I love all the pockets especially. I also like the flashy lining. I think the piping is a nice touch, I need to use it in my bags more..Is that the lotus from Sublime stitching?

Smiley thanks everyone!!

It looks incredible! Very professional, and I love the lining and the embroidery.
I'm sure your friend will love it! How long did it take to make?
I'm not quite sure how long it took, because i didn't make it all in one session. And i keep losing track of time while im sewing Wink. My guess would be 10 - 15 hours.

I agree with Zephyr!  Very well made and very professional.  The lining is so beautiful...where did you find it?
I saw it at IKEA and just had to buy it. It frayed terribly and was really a pain to work with.

Yes, i wanted to do the dragon first but i decided, that it would be a little hard for a first try.
