Another fashionable bag

My cute friend Fayrai emailed and asked for a bag. She sent me the link to Becky's site, showing a picture of her most recent purse creation for inspiration. It's been a while since I've created a bag so I said, "Sure! Why not?"

A created a small pocket with a flap closure on the front like she did and used the Basic Grey magnets to hold it closed. (Love those things!) I hid the magnets between the layers of paper so they are hardly noticeable.

For those that are curious, I did not purchase Becky's pattern and copy it. I simply looked at the picture and created my own bag. The bag is large enough to accommodate several A2 size cards and envelopes. And you'll notice the sides on my bag are rounded not straight like hers.

So Fayrai,... It's not identical, but whatta ya think??
