Handbag with pockets.

This one was based on my quilt guild’s summer challenge.  We were each given a fat quarter of a blue/green/purple marble-print fabric. It reminded me of peacock feathers, so I based the appliqué on that. Americans of my age recall the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) using a peacock as its logo, so I embroidered that onto the appliqué, which became part of the outer pocket. 

There is an inner pocket the same size, divided by a seam, into 2.  I managed box pleats, which were the hardest part, due to the thick canvas I used for the body of the bag. 

The snaps are magnetic and the adjustable strap is nylon webbing.

Here it is;

Lovely work @Sara-S  :) The matching embroidery is such a cool idea and I'm sure it's handy having all those pockets
