The fabrics in the picture below is from my current stash - you can see what colors I tend to stockpile.
This is the front. It is made from a 16 year old Vogue Boutique pattern:
The periwinkle lining has 2 interior pockets:
And there is one huge pocket that goes across the entire back:
I didn't have enough of the periwinkle silk to line the whole thing so I used some leftover hot pink satin for the bottom of the bag.
The handles are stuffed with drapery cord and the button is a lovely vintage Czech Glass button.
I spent the better part of yesterday working on it and am very pleased with the results. I even have some leftover silk shantung -- one piece in royal blue and another in a gorgeous violet that might look just as special in this design.
Thanks for reading.
