It's been a while as I've been tending to my 3 yr old toddler...and I've been going through withdrawals!!!  I'm planning on making a matching wallet but here's my latest.  The outside fabric is almost like suit material but it's rather silky, thick in texture, and a dark grey.  The lining is a batik sea turtle print with aqua green and purple and blue.  I cut out a turtle and made my own applique for the front.  It is stiff so it stands up on it's own by using thick iron on interfacing.  Matching loops hold the plastic handles which are a brown combo color.  Oh, and it has a magnetic closure.  Please let me know what you think.

Dimension:
13" across the top left to right, 10" across the bottom left to right, 8" tall, 4" depth in the bottom, pockets are 9" across, 6 1/2" deep & 4 1/2" wide each.
