Been wanting so long to make this bag,...well at last it's done. Still the outcome is not like what I expected. Need lots of restructuring to improve the total look. The fabric treatment need to change, however the leather trimmings and base is satisfying.

Here, my lovely Jasmine, modelling the bag in a sling manner. Bag look a little bit large on this petite model.

Here, the bag is worn cross-body.

Bag measure - 12''L x 5" W x 14 1/2" H.
Leather trimmings are of coffee and grey suede.
Base is full grey suede leather.

Zips at the side, enables the bag to convert.
You can wear it deep or shallow.

When fold out, reveal the quilted lining (grey cotton contribution from Aida). Quilting design, something I pick up from the Vistana gatherings.

Looking forward to make the improved version, or maybe it'll be a little while longer. I'm already thinking of making a new design. Will post it as soon as I get it done.
