There is a unusual shaped front pocket and flap with three big buttons for a decorative accent. A magnetic snap keeps the bag securely closed but also permits the bag to be easily opened.

The front has two contracting fabrics. Annette's used a wool fabric she quilted herself and a cork fabric.

The strap can be a self-made fabric strap or a store brought strap. For this bag, Annette made the strap.

The bag is completely lined with an interior pocket.

Finished size is 12" wide x 14" long and 2" depth.

By making purses and bags yourself, you create a bag that is different, unique and one-of-a-kind. That is what I love about making my own bags.
