Used to be this:
I found this set of 4 placemats and loved, loved, loved the design. The background fabric is a really soft beige/taupe colored cotton that looks like linen. And the floral pattern is a turquoise-green velvet. The back of the placemats have the same soft linen looking fabric.
Here's how I cut out the pattern pieces:
The long piece at the top became the strap (only used the top layer), the body of the bag used the front and back pieces, and I had some fabric left over so I added a little detail to the inside pocket:
I used a brushed twill in white for the lining, added a zipper, swivel clasp hook and "D" ring from my stash. It's actually a pretty generous size for carrying your cell phone, wallet, lip gloss and keys. It was really fun to make!
