Size: approx 10" x 12" with the gusset 7" wide at the bottom. 
Extras:Two inside pockets (one with a zipper & one for cards) and two outside pockets. There is an optional key fob in each outside pocket - Adjustable handle from 43" down to 28" - Both views are included in the pattern. You also have my contact details for any challenges that may occur while making your bag.
Design Ideas: If you are a collector of batik fabrics they also work excellently, all you do is choose your favourite colour combination. It is also stunning, made with Japanese fabrics. You could make it with quilting cottons as I have or you can use a furnishing fabric and omit the quilting step. Why not make both?

The zippered top makes this a very safe handbag, or small tote, to use as a travel bag. The size makes it perfect to check out a new quilting design or to practice your free hand machine quilting. Don't worry if stippling is not your thing. Just use your walking foot and quilt with a straight line design.
This is a ten page physical pattern and twelve pages for the electronic version, with measurements given for most of the cutting. The gusset templates do not require enlarging, the fabric is folded or when you cut out your template you can fold the paper. The zippers are the easy part - the gusset facings and facings may be a little fiddly if you are new to this type of stitching - but you can contact me if you need any clarification.
