    The embroidery on this bag is beautiful. I bought the purse because it reminded me of a soft, embroidered velvet sewing pouch my mom used to have. Unfortunately, the purse is not as soft and flexible as I had hoped, but it is made very well and will probably lose its stiffness after use. The only thing that took me aback was that the inside said "100% cotton and 100% velvet" when the lining seemed to be polyester. There's a zipper on the top, of course, and also a zipper on the backside for a separate pocket. The length is perfect for an across the chest style. The main reason you want this bag is because the embroidery is beautiful, though. The picture does it justice.
