What's Working on Wednesday

I haven't been on a bag kick in a long time, but it seems the tote/handbag bug has bitten me again. After completing the Alana bag in the cherry blossom fabric last week I was itching to make another. I chose this fabric from Connecting Threads as my DD said, "make a purple one."

And lucky me, while cleaning the closet in my sewing room I found this!
It just happened to be the perfect color for the lining. I remember buying it when the color was being discontinued. It was .99 a yard! No way I could pass that up!

So here it is all done, I think. I know you can't tell from the picture but the button has a purple/plum center that matches the bag pretty well. I haven't decided if I'll keep it or maybe search the button jars for another.
What do you think?

As soon as I saw the fabric I remembered it was Connecting Threads. What a fortuitous find in your stash with the purple bolt. That fabric makes a great bag.
