Chinese silk brocade bag

I’ve fancied a bag like this for a while
now, and so I tracked down some fabric and embarked on drafting the pattern
(not too hard ;-)!) and constructing my own with pockets to suit *me*!

The only thing I’d change is to maybe do a zipped
inner pocket (the large inside pocket (on the front wall) is fastened with a
magnetic snap.)I’ve had a bit of a sewing slump recently so this has been my
reward in between getting back into work sewing!

I’m rather pleased with myself and this bag I have to say!

30cm x 25cm appx, own pattern

piping close up – I kind of cheated and used ready made bias strip to make the piping -the original idea had been to make my own with the lining fabric -but actually the navy looks really nice and I saved myself a lot of work – though it was enough as it was!
