A Finished WIP. Gorgeous Carpet Bag

Well, I must say, I am so thrilled how my new  handbag has turned out. There is over seven hours work in this one.  The most time was taken while doing the quilting of the outside fabric and the lining with the added zip pocket and open pockets with room for phone, lipstick and keys etc.  You also need to make a casing in which to hold the base board.  The easiest part, believe it or not, was adding the casing in which to thread the metal magnetic handle.

I can certainly say, this is my selfish sewing project.

I was asked by a lady in one of the quilting groups online just what the measurements are.  They are approx. 14"wide x 11"high and 5"deep.
