The bag's a really nice shape but I think you probably have one fabric too many in the mix. Also, watch your bobbin colour, you'd have a better finish if you'd used a brown bobbin when you put your zip in. If you're not a crazy person like those of us who have gadzillions of bobbins, it's often better to use a beige or light grey rather than black or white if you can't actually match your fabric colour. keep on sewing.
My friends' twin daughters had daughters of their own very close together. The two little cousins like to have everythting the same so I made them matching bags. After I put the first one together, I decided the handles were too wide for 6yo hands, so I unpicked the absolute bare minimum to get the handles out, then folded them over, sewed down the length and stuck them back in. I made them a few inches sorter while I was at it. The handles are much stiffer than they would have been but that's probably a good thing.
There's just so much going on. I love the movement in them. I like how you have fallen off the edges of the basic shape. I particularly like the last one for reasons i can't really articulate except that it makes me happy somehow. and the second last makes me think of Munch's The Scream.
Ron who? I had to google him cos I had no idea. Your little dude is way cuter! I love his hair and his wonky eyebrows and his mo, I love his jacket. I even love the shape of his head! he is so darn cute.
What started out as a simple (pillowcase type) bag for a present that was awkward to wrap ended up with a flat bottom with removeable plastic wrapped base and pockets inside and out . Stripes may make it easier to line things up but they make your brain melt
