Mary - you have a real flair for hangbag design! I love the decorative stitching.

What a beautiful bag! I can see why your ex-MIL loved it so much. I love the idea of using the interfaced felt! I have a velvet bag cut out and have been trying to decide what to use - I think the felt will work nicely.
