This is the bag I use every day for work.
It was made using the City Bag pattern from Nicole Mallaleiu. I love it. It's roomy and has 2 large slip pockets on the inside too for all my little bits. I made it using the last bit of my favourite out-of-print quilting cotton fabric. As I did not have enough of the quilting cotton to make a whole bag from, I paired this yummy fabric with some decorator weight linen.
I used a little bit of black piping trim on the edge of the quilting cotton to give it a little definition. I had also wanted to use this lovely adjustable black leather handle with it and needed a smidgeon of black elsewhere in the bag to tie it together.
The top is closed with a black zipper and the bag is lined with a black floral print cotton fabric. This bag makes me happy. It faithfully holds all my essential daily stuff and does it with style.
Have a great day friends.
