After much practice and waiting for my skills to improve, I finally did it. That's right, the City Satchel. And I love how it turned out! I found these fabrics in the home decor section of the fabric store, but they are a very sturdy cotton and I think they are cool together in a not too matchy-matchy way. I decided to go with a rusty orange color for the lining and I even added my own personal touch by doing a zippered pocket on the inside. To be honest, it was easier than I thought it would be. It took one afternoon to do the exterior portions, then a couple more hours to do the lining. It's just as cute as I'd imagined, and I'm super happy with it.
