A bag for me

Just finished my margaret bag from here - http:// I made the cross-body style.
The fabric I used is a furnishing weight from Ikea and instead of the interfacing and interlining I used a single layer of thin iron-on pellon. The button is covered with the same fabric, fussy cut to use the seed pod design.
I added a key clip and incresed the size of the pleat slightly but otherwise followed the pattern.
I'll give it a test drive over the next few days, but found the pattern really easy.

This is gorgeous - I love the fabric and would love to hear how the heavier weight works with only the pellon as it sounds easier to do and I need a 'first bag' project!
