What materials did you use? About a yard and a half of fabric for the exterior, I used a red tag home decor fabric for a bit more stability. About 1/2 a yard for the lining, Light to mid weight interfacing, a magnetic snap closure, 7 inch zipper and coordinating thread.

What are you most proud of? This is the very first project I have done using a tradition commercial pattern, and also the very first "purse" I have ever made. I learned a lot of new techniques and I'm super happy with the way that it turned out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. Measure twice, cut once!

Super bag! Great fabrics and I love all of the pockets, especially the zippered one.
