Fabrics from Cloth House Soho, frame from U-handbag.com.
Outer fabric interfaced with firm iron-on then pleated. Bag lined with one layer medium sew-in and one layer compressed fleece. Lining fabric interfaced with fine iron-on.
Lots of lining materials means the bag can stand up on its own and has a good level of 'substance'.
Patterns created using a combinations of a cut down of the 'pleated darted bag' and pattern making learned from the 'using a purse frame' tutorial and kits.
