Nothing is so simple that it can't be screwed up

I designed this bag for my mom for Mother's Day.  The outer is a mid-weight black cotton/poly blend and suiting material, as well as cotton prints to accent (applique).  The lining is cotton with a zipper pocket.  The inside of the pocket is the same turquoise fabric.  The strap has 2 fabrics and a little hardware for accent.  It is fully lined with thin quilt batting, except the flap which just has interfacing.  I made it extra sturdy.  The closure on the bag is a black fabric covered button (it is a bit hard to see in the pic- I did it this way to blend in with the bag).  I was inspired by the outfits of people walking to the subway in the morning in my "uptown" neighborhood (everone seems to wear black/white and a splash of color). I hope my mom likes it.  Comments?  What do you think?

Thank you.  It was the first time I've done a zippered pocket on the inside, and I have to say, it was more time consuming than I thought.  I'll have to do a search and look for tutorials on how other people do it, because I'm sure I took the most convoluted route to zipper insertion imaginable.  How long does it take the average person to put in a zippered pocket like that?  I swear I was at it for about an hour. I was so fearful of screwing up the whole darn thing and I didn't have any extra fabric to redo it if I botched.  I'm sure it is far from perfect- but I don't think my mom will notice.

I LOVE the colors and fabrics. It's so graphic and turquoise is one of my favorite colors and goes so great with black and white. It's very 80's-  I wore those colors all the time in high school in the 80's and I still love them. (haha wearing a black and white print top right now!)  You also did a really nice job with the construction.

I love what you did with your black and white with a splash of color inspiration!  The bag is really gorgeous.
