My new handbag....

Simplicity 0579.  I found enough scraps in my new fabric stash to make this bag Sunday. (now I have to make more turquoise and brown outfits).....
Shot of the inside. 
The pattern didn't call for a zippered pocket, so I added one. I need it to throw in my cell phone, car keys...whatever, ya know??


I just put a small 7" zipper between the top facing and bottom lining, then added a patch of fabric behind it.  This bag was so much fun to make....now on to finding more scraps....
I think the bag measures around 15" wide x 10", something like that (alot of help that is, huh?)
