Back with another bag I made over the weekend, this time a Xmas pressie for a friend who loooves autumn colours.  It is a slouchy kind of bag with pleats.  I got the tute from some generous person on craftster, but once again, having trouble locating it.  Will edit it in asap. Yay, I found it: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149376.0. Three cheers for bouncyflea!
Anyhoodle, on to the pics:
Here is an action shot courtesy of a work friend:

The fabric is cotton with gold so it looks more silky than it is.

Another coupla action shots:

The zipper pocket:


and the pockets on tother side. The little flap with the magnetic catch is drooping into the photo too.

Hmmmm... I think it looks better in real life than the photos.  Also, should have probly put some interfacing in the yoke to hold up the flap. 

Thanks fer looking and I would welcome suggestions and comments.

That fabric is gorgeous! You did a very nice job on making the bag Smiley If I didn't have so many homemade bags already, I would definitely jump for that tutorial! Wonderful job  Cheesy

I found it, and edited it into the original post. It is by bouncyflea, and it is a corker! Grin
