I'm not that happy today, i was very excited about the idea of making this bag, but when i put all the pieces together, mmm I'm not liking it very much. what do you think?



the green square fabric are/were going to be pockets.



i found some of this virgin iron on, and I so want to use them.. but maybe this was not a good idea. somebody has any idea of what would be a good way to use them? Can they be iron it to any kind of fabric?

well thanks to your comments i decided to finish the bag, give it a try, and this is how it came out:


I like to leave out a bit of the lining (sorry if this is not well said, english is not my first language) and it gave it a bit more of green at the top.

A little embellishment: 


when i was done, i realize  that i forgot to put the tag. so I had to do this:


So what do you think?

I think there should be more green at the top and less of it at the bottom.... I like those two colors together!!! Don't worry! It'll be a cool bag!

I think it's just adorable and I always forget to put my tags on too! Never thought of putting them on the handle!
