Just made this new design bag.
I wanted to make a soft looking bag
but having a hard shell around the zipper.
I have added two gathered pockets at the front.
Hard shell around the zipper allows you to easily open it with one hand.
When it's soft, the fabric gets pulled with the zipper and you need to hold the fabric while opening the zipper.
The end of the zipper is made longer and it extends down to the soft section.
This allows you to open the bag wide.
The bottom is leather, and it has hard stabilizing sheet inside that is made specifically for the bag bottom.
When you open the zipper, it opens wide like this with the added gusset
The handle is leather.
