Another Small Savannah Bag

After seeing the Savannah bag that I made smaller for myself, my daughter wanted me to make her one too. She has always liked the messenger/lap top style bags for carrying round the things she needs. She wanted me to use this batik fabric with the palm trees that I had. Then I showed her some other batiks and hand dyed fabric that I had that I thought would work well with it and she was fine with those choices. So here it is: (this is a Chris W. Design design bag)

The front of the bag.

I used a hand dyed fabric for the lining that I dyed a couple of years ago.

Looking inside the bag there are 3 pockets.

Side view. Above the gusset pocket I added a hook for her to hook her keys to.

Zipper pull I made with beads and a charm that says it all. The green batik here looks like an Army green, which is not the true color.

I took some photos inside because you can see the green color how it really looks.

  1. What a cute bag ! You're right the zipper pull says it all. Your hand dyed fabric is most impressive. I've never made any bags, but admire them. I'm waiting on fusible fleece to arrive so I can start the Tammy bag.

    Smart with key ring, and the closing of the front. I might copy that. :-)

Cute zipper pull...I've been fiddling with making zipper pulls myself lately too....I saw some of those "made with love" zipper charms on ebay and was thinking of getting them....now that I saw how great they look on a pull, I might do just that! LOLL I also found some cute looking owls that will make a cute pull and have ordered those....LOL Amazing what you can find on ebay BUT Ohhhh what a TIME eater it is too!
