I managed to adjust a few things on the bag so that it turned into a bag and not just a pile of sewn pieces, LOL!!! Aren't you glad that if you purchase a pattern from Imazz or other designers, that the item was tested and changes were made so you can just follow the instructions and sew? It sure made me use my "little gray cells" as Poirot would say.
I showed this bag to some of the women in my sewing group and they thought it was fabulous looking. I think so too. If you would like to make this bag you can purchase the pattern from Imazz Patterns Craftsy store or Etsy store. The introductory price is only $4.99! That's a great price!

I usually decide on the fabric first when making a bag, but since I needed several zippers to create the front pockets, I decided I better look at the zipper colors first and see if I had enough zippers in certain colors in order to make this bag. Since I had enough zippers in off-white to brown colors, I chose to use those zippers. Then I had to find a fabric that would look good with the zippers. It turned out that the fabric I chose is perfect for this time of the year. Very winter looking. Okay enough blabbing from me. Here is my Angelina bag:
|I added some coin charms on the zipper pulls.|
|I also chose to sew my zippers using a decorative zigzag stitch, rather than a straight stitch.|
|Because of the incorrect measurement I cut on the exterior of the bag bottom, the lining bottom turned out a bit baggy. It won't show once there are things inside the bag.|
|I sewed a pen pocket in the center of my slip pocket.|
