I created this bag for display. It is totally solid and somewhat awkward to make. Around the opening for the handle you end up topstitching over the topstitching. So if you are fussy, it looks a little messy. Really, if you want this bag, you have to overlook a few points that are not neat. I find that today's designers do not really care about detail. They are willing to sacrifice a fine finish so long as from afar - it looks good. Are we losing our hand for finishing?
