With that in mind the bag became revers able. LOVE IT!!! The black fabric I purchased. This is the front of the bag when it is turned. The bag has a button closure. The button is big and fun for the front of the first photo, the second is a little smaller, just a little more casual. The entire bag is free motion machine stitching, front and back.
So, the bag has to have a pocket. I made a large pocket that is divided in the center, so really you are getting two. Then I added a Velcro closure. :0)
Well I had extra material left over, I decided to make a purse organizer to go with it. This as well has a loop over a button closure. I think it makes the perfect accessorise to the bag.
On the top of the bag near the handle placement is pleated. This follows through on all sides of the bag, including the revers able side.
My favorite side, I have to say is the stripe quilted side. Top photo. I love it, it has class. It is funny with polka dots, you really can not add a lot to them, they speak for themselves. If you add to much to it, it tends to get a to busy. I think the perfect bag pattern suits the dots well. I am very excited and can not wait to send it on it's way. :0) I hope she likes it.
