This bag is great for a beginner, is beautiful and quick to sew. The pattern gives you many options, you can use magnetic snap or zipper closure, exterior pocket or just interior pockets, you can play a lot with this bag. For my bag I use magnetic snap closure and just the interior pockets.
I use 100% cotton fabric for exterior and lining and the accent is red pleather.
The exterior fabric came from and cushion case that I never use, I interfaced it with a no woven interfacing to give it more structure, but that was a mistake, I don't like the feeling is more like paper than fabric, but still looks nice ;)
Here a photo of the interior. One zipper pocket and one big slip pocket. And you can notice that it is very roomy. Great to go shopping or to the pool.
Take a look of the details, the handle, looks complicate but it is quite simple to do and looks fabulous.
And the bottom, look that shape, very nice, isn't it?
