The Daphne Bag

I just finished making this lovely bag. The pattern is Daphne, a downloadable pdf from Jennie and Clara of Clover and Violet. I have made a few of their patterns in the past and always love the way their bags turn out. 

This bag is made from several of my Sultan’s Garden fabrics.  I used a floral from the apricot/turquoise colorway for the body of the bag and accented the edge and handle with the bold striped fabric.  The liner is made from the subtler dotted pattern that complements the strong colors on the bag's exterior. The base of the bag is an aqua colored faux leather, which I picked up at Mood. It gives the bottom form and makes it more durable than fabric alone.

This bag has a number of nice features including an adjustable strap and zippered closure. Inside are zippered and slip pockets. I'm sure this one will be a favorite.
