Frenchy Bag

It's been a year since we started Secret Sisters with the women in our church and I wanted to make my last gift when I reveal myself.  Throughout the year I didn't want to make anything to obvious that it was me so now is my opportunity.  I picked up Amy Butler's Frenchy Bag pattern hoping to make it for myself sometime too.
 My secret sister's favorite colour is yellow so I chose fabrics accordingly.  I had a tough time picking fabrics as I'm not usually drawn to yellow but I really love the result.
I put in a zipper pocket on the one side instead of another divider pocket.  I also used canvas as the interfacing and I love how it feels!  Very "bag like" without it being stiff.
My cheesy model :)
