I have a friend who is a flight attendant and she told me to NEVER put my Weekender bag thru as luggage, that I would never see it again. 

Your bag is simply gorgeous, striking, and you certainly did a beautiful job on it!  Here's a small tip for sewing in the lining.  Take a few stitches here and there on seam lines, inside, to keep the lining up flat against the inside, it will tend to droop a bit, otherwise. 

My interior fabric is mostly black, so I actually had to put a lamp down inside my bag so I could see what I was doing.  It never occured to me to use my headlamp thingie that I use when I cut the doggies' toenails!  That would have been a lot easier!   Roll Eyes

i love this. i would really love to start making bags but i am really nervous.  do youmake your own patterns or do you get them from a website?

Sleahy - you can also check out u-handblog, which has free patterns (I like them)

**hope this isn't old news - I'm a craftser newbie**

I love the red against the fabric.  I think the piping looks great.

Don't make me release the flying monkeys.
