I have been toying with the idea of making a Bella Bag from Chris W Designs out of faux leather. I had just enough of one of my favorite dark red faux leathers left. I can't find anymore of it since I got it at Norwalk Fabric Outlet last year and I bought the last yard and a half that they had. I hated that by using this, it would be completely gone but I thought it would make for a great bag.
I really love this pattern. The bag is comfortable to wear and it is very roomy without looking huge. There is a huge slip pocket on the front of the bag and a zipper pocket on the back. There are elasticized pockets on each side of the outside.
The inside has a zippered pocket with a slip pocket behind it on one side and a divided slip pocket on the other side.
I finished the front flap with a metal button that I love. The faux leather I used here has a soft almost suede like feel so it moved along my machine well with no need for a teflon or walking foot. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
If you haven't made this pattern yet, give it a try. You can get the pattern here.
