Redwork Bag

As you know, I've been doing some simple hand embroidery lately.    I made up this little bag to keep my stitching project and supplies in.  This one is a little different than my travel pouch - which I love.  I'm not sure I'll  like this one as much... I really need a window, but I'll give this a try.  I just love the color. For some added bling I also added a little floss charm and crystal to pull the zipper.

So here's what I'm thinking.  I used machine embroidery to stitch redwork on my handwork bag.  Hmm...Is that a little contradictory?   Too bad, I really like it and it was pretty quick to make.  I'll use it to keep my TV-watching project organized.

Some will ask about a pattern, but no particular pattern was used.  I loosely used a couple of free tutorials to make it, but not bad for my prototype.  I have a Zippy pattern on order which should make my next one easier.  I like it for the way the zipper ends are finished.

This isn't contradictory at all. Not everything can be hand-made! The bag is so cute. Could you tell us approximately how big it is?
