Purple Briefcase in Soft Upholstery Fabric with Yellow Lining.

This is probably the ultimate in personal accessories! Are you an alumni of a school with purple as one of their colors? Here in Seattle, it's the University of Washington! All true fans sport their purple and gold! Or, perhaps you are just wild about the color purple?

Well, this is a gorgeous streamlined briefcase, only 2" across the bottom, yet as you can see from one of the photos, it still holds at least 3 large art books.

This bag is made of an upholstery fabric that has plushness woven in. You can see the little "windows" in the photographs, well those are the super plush parts! The fabric has a very nice touch!

I have handmade this bag down to its very details. The outer bag measures 17" wide by 13" high at the top of the slightly curved upper edge of the bag. There is a 6" drop from the handles to the upper edges of the bag; plenty long enough to carry on your arm, as well as by hand. The handles are handstitched over cording and attached to the bag quite securely.

The bag closes with a matching nylon zipper which extends beyond the end of the bag to allow you to open the bag wide--for those art books, perhaps! The zipper pull sports a braided cord to help you grasp it easier.

The inside of the bag is lined in pale yellow polyester lining fabric. There is a large full-width pocket, which I have embellished with purple stitching by hand. There is also a pen pocket stitched in.

This is a super handy bag, as it holds books, papers, sewing, reading, and many other things, I'm sure.

Please note that the scarf shown with the briefcase is not included with your order. It is listed for sale separately.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I made a bag using this pattern for myself at least 5 years ago. Mine is a deep red faux suede with a yellow and deep red floral inside. I love my bag and have used it a lot! It's held up quite well, just in case you're wondering!

If purple isn't your might consider a custom order so you can choose your colors.
