Made of tapestry fabric (printed in Spain), has an inner pocket and closes with zipper. The pattern is mine (and you can download it for free as a PDF here: http://skyturtle.wordpress.com/2010/09/07/planning-world-domination-handbag-tutorial-and-pattern/)

Thank you Sharalee, it's actually pretty easy to make and very practical.

For their birthdays I ask my friends to pick something for me to sew and this bag is very popular. It's big, easy to wash because it doesn't have fusible interface (just machine wash, then iron) and it's comfortable on the shoulder with or without a jacket.

I have on in black velvet and it looks very elegant, but the best fabric is thick canvas, denim, cord or tapestry fabric.
