It's a roomy one, coming in at 19" x 12" x 5", and I lined it with some cotton fabric I had in the house. The buttons were also a stash dive, and I love how they look.
Additionally, check out the sassy knit leaves and cables!
The bag is composed of three blocks per side from Nicky Epstein's Block By Block book (which I'm certain most of you have read about in previous posts of mine). The leaves at the bottom are actually two pieces of one block that I decided to keep apart and use them in this manner. The gusset is yet another block that I customized in length and width, and used one complete skein of Cascade 220 Quatro to make. Bag design and finishing are all from my head.
