How darling! This style is actually quite chic and works right now! Good styling Nancy! I want to make it in fake leather!

Really wonderful. Would cost a pretty penny in the stores.

Lovely bag, your fabrics are so wonderful. Great to have this done already for the contest, for me this is the most difficult part. Thanks for the detailed pictures of the zipper application.

Great handbag! I have found that a bag with a shorter depth and a longer length, is much easier to carry and is easier to see the contents AND... the more pockets the better!

This is great! Fabulous fabric. I appreciate the tip on putting in a zippered pocket. I usually add the patch pockets, but would much prefer a zippered one.

I just bought the fabric yesterday at my local Beverly's store. I can't remember who the maker is.

Your fabric coordinations are beautiful and provide added zip to this already stylish bag. I too like big bags and this one is very special. Excellent review, too. -Lily

Love it!!! I'm working on the Weekender Bag from Amy Butler and I'm doing the same thing with pockets. I've been thinking about putting a zippered pocket on the outside but wasn't quite sure how to go about it. I'll have to study yours and Deepika's. Thanks for reviewing.. I may have to buy that pattern. CUTE!
