Here's the bag I've been working on! I think of it as my
birthday bag, since I just turned 38 (woo hoo!). The bag
is patterned somewhat after this one, which I enjoyed so
much that it plum wore out. As you can see, I repurposed
the strap from the former bag and re-used it on this one.
I also enlarged this bag a bit and added the darted pocket
with lid on the front, for additional storage. I was also
happy to find a place to sport that strand of velvet ribbon!
