Friend Jaye gifted me one of her beautifully made Hackney bags. It's so gorgeous, and I was so pleased to see how well it matched some of my recently dyed fabric. She wrote a post about it on her blog here with more info about the pattern and construction.
In my opinion friend Jaye is no longer practically a professional at this bag making thing, she's a full-on for-real professional at this point. Amazing what making bags for years does for your skills mastery isn't it?
