Finally I've decided to make my first bag, well I did a kind of bag for secret Santa (see here), but now I've tried to do a much more professional one, adding an inside zip pocket and an outer zippered. These were the two features that my sister requested for bag for a 12 years old girl, who have their money, house keys and mobile. All tied tightly closed.
So for me it was a great challenge. The problem of the inside zipper was easily solved by following the fantastic tutorial from Charo (see here), with exterior zipper no problems, my biggest problem has been the strips across the bag, this is something to improve, but hey, here I leave the result.
¿Os suena la tela? Mira que me ha dado juego la tela, pero es que es muy bonita! En un bolso he puesto en la portada a dos señores en la parada del autobús con un perro. Y en el otro, a una chica con su bolso.
Does it sound the fabric? I have used this fabric for a lot of things..., but it's very nice! I put in the front side of a bag two people at the bus stop with a dog. And on the other one, a girl with her purse.
Y aquí veis los dos bolsos con sus tiras para cruzarlos

Y un detalle de la cremallera interior, junto con la marca del bolso, me encanta cómo queda! Parece más profesional, verdad?
And an inside zipper detail, along with brand bag, I love how it looks! It looks more professional, right?
Finalmente un detalle del bolsillo abierto:
Finally, a detail with the open pocket.
