This bag reminds me of an old suit jacket with elbow patches. The fabric is a vintage hounds-tooth type polyester knit. I used a thick, microfiber type fabric for the bottom of the bag.

Love, love, love! Did you make the pattern yourself or follow something?

The tan fabric is an artificial suede-type fabric. I didn't use a pattern, it is my own design.
