While the boys were young, occasionally, I would work at market for a friend's showroom. I loved it. Her business was accessories and of course, the biggest fun one for me was the handbags. I bought several. Here's one:
The vendor was known for making jackets, yet did dabble in handbags. This is a heavy weight fabric, fully lined in dark blue with a pocket. I have to say this is my perfect size and style.
