It surprises me th't fabric choices alone can make such a difference in any pattern.

Whereas this pattern made the terrific bag posted couple days ago,


it also has made this bag.



And,  here's the interior:


I do remember that I'd bought it for this particular pattern. I had higher expectations for this one than how it has turned out. I knew it wasn't going to come near the black-and-white one, but I have to admit, I did expect it to look better th'n this

Maybe, th' issue isn't the appearance of the bag, but the difficulties I experienced while making it. That's a definite possibility. Skipped stitches,  loopy bobbin threads, different types of fabrics (Cotton & Poly: don't look too awful t'gether, but aren't terrific.) It is possible I'm charging the bag with the difficulties making it. But, it still doesn't thrill me.

What do you think Craftsters? Am I being too harsh with th's bag? Or is it actually okay?

Thank you, kaz814.
I believe that the issue with it was the difficulties I experienced while making it.

I showed it to my Mum, and she thought it looked great.
Another part of my being so unenthused about it may have been th' colour. Pinky/mauve isn't "my colour".
I gave it to my Mum. She likes it a lot.

Thank you, Alexus1325.
Mum really likes it as well.
Pinky-Mauve just doesn't do it for me.
(But, for a Kwik Sew 3749 pattern, it's one of the best I've done.)


This (black and white) one is my favourite
