The bottom yarn is Renaissance something or another that I got from my roommate for my birthday.  I only had one skein of it.  The rest went into a neckwarmer with the same sc, dc, sc, etc. stitch pattern.  The top yarn is from elann.com and is left over from mimiw's shawl that I made her for a personal swap.  I have two full skeins left, so more little bags may well be on my horizon!  The ribbon is from my stash and the beads are from mimiw.  I am very happy with the look of this bag and the fact that I busted some stash!  All of my projects are stash-busters these days.  Wink

Here is the bag open and next to a water bottle for scale.  Thanks for looking!

I think your camera does what mine does. It brings into focus the things in the background, but can not see what is in the foreground.

I also think this is cute!  I like the colors too.  Your using it for dice? 
About the autofocus cameras.  If you half press down the button with what you want to focus on in the middle of your screen, (sometimes there's a guiding square on your screen), then after it focuses, you can move your camera to frame your picture anywhere you like, and it will keep focus on the object you first pointed at, then press down the button the rest of the way. (when things focus wrong, it's because it automatically focuses on what's in the middle, and auto focus camera's suck at close ups. Notice how in the pic above, the background spray is in the middle of the pic?)
For very close close-ups with autofocus cameras, it's best to pull back a bit, and then crop the pic in the computer.  The resolution is high enough that there isn't usually a difference, and the camera's focus better.

Thanks for the info Nomiji. I will try that.

For some reason, I can see the bag better now. Very nice.
