Madeleine Bag

Oh, Pinterest.  I was looking for a bag to sew for a gift, but then I happened upon this one...and now that I've made it, it might just remain mine!

I used some IKEA fabric that I bought awhile back, thinking it would make a cool bag of some sort.  Great tutorial was found at imagine gnats, and I learned how to install my first zipper pocket, and created a very cool pleated pocket for the interior, and even installed one of my newly ironed tags. I have learned enough for one bag. I opted for a fabric covered button with an elastic closure.  I'll tackle the magnetic button on the next one!
