Working with faux leather

Three of us got together to make a faux leather handbag yesterday. I had never worked with this fabric so got out my trusty Pfaff 7570 put in a new needle and the practice went well so I awaited Christine who was helping us make the bags.
The pattern is a free download from so-sew-easy.com luckily there are pages and pages of instructions.
It was definitely a learning curve putting it together, but both Pauline and I managed to complete the bag, and I think making another would be easier having learnt how it all goes together. I think I may make one in cotton fabric as I love the size.

Inside there are three sections [ one in the middle is not open for the photo]
The so-sew-easy.com site has lots of things to explore, many for free.
