I just finished this little Backpack, Pocketbook. The material is a really soft wool,I guess. :) My sister gave me some wonderful materials and this was in amongst the goodies. It is fully lined and heavy duty, but surprisingly soft.
This is the back, of course, I don't think I much care for doing straps in this way. I found it was really bulky with 10 layers to sew through at once. Hopefully, it is sturdy enough to hold up. :)
The finishing touch is this wooden button out of my button stash. Nancy Jo sent it to me. CR picked it out and we both agreed it was the perfect accent. :P
