I tried a new bag pattern for my sister's birthday, it was at the beginning of the month, yes I was late getting it to her - thats families for you :o)
She likes brown and green so I immediately thought about this Amy Butler brown fabric and used some bright green for the bottom accent.
I then used a pink zip and some pink and white checked fabric to use as a contrast lining.
Unlike me, who likes to carry the kitchen sink about, she prefers a smaller bag and I hope this will work for her and that she likes it.
I used this pattern by Pattern Play
The lining is a 'square dot' on a brown background and I used the pink check for an inside pocket with a magnetic snap for closing (I didn't use a zip for closing as I didn't have one to hand that was long enough)
PS I am thinking maybe I should make a bag or two from this pattern for my website - what do you think?
