I Love Viceroy

The Alexander Henry "Viceroy" Fabric is a medium to heavy weight cotton canvas. Its design is classic. I love the contrast of the black and white. It was time to sew something for myself so I selected a simple bag pattern that could be worn as a messenger bag. (See & Sew B5273) It would be handy for travelling and walks in the park when I wouldn't want to sling my current heavy, leather purse over my shoulder. It's a fairly easy pattern. To conserve some of the Viceroy fabric for another bag, I used Kona cotton as the lining and also as the back piece for the pockets. This added an interesting design element to the bag.

The bag is fully lined and has two pockets made out of the Viceroy.

While searching for inspiration using Viceroy, I stumbled upon these chairs. I could see using Viceroy throughout my house. But for now, I'm content to admire my bag.
