    I made this bag today. I used a washable sueded fabric from the home decorating section at Joann's. The lining is from my stash - I think it's called Botanica, but don't have any of the selvedge to check.

    It's very easy. I enlarged it to 110%, but next time will make it a little larger. I made the strap 24", rather than 20" the pattern called for. I also added fusible fleece to the lining and decor bond to the top section for a little more body. I'm very pleased with how it came out.

    The pattern is free, here's the link:

    Very cute - the sueded fabric was a good choice for this.

    I love the fabric, but it was kind of pain to press. It wanted to stick to the iron, so I had to use a presscloth. But that made it hard to see if I had it lined up correctly. Guess I must have! :)

    I downloaded the pattern, but the pattern is nothing compared to yours.

    Great job, I love your choice of fabric.

    Thanks for sharing!
