Hi Smiley I decided to learn sewing and it's my first "big" project. I made myself a bag and it's.. not so perfect i expected Wink

Is it nice? Should I wear it or learn more and sew something different??

I say use it! Even if you arent 100% in love with it (and it truly is fabulous--I love it 100% from here!), you might learn something unexpected by seeing it up close and in use!!! That way your "next time" can have even better results than you might expect...

I can't see any of the details in those photos, but it looks like a pretty good bag from what I can see, and you made it, so use it! Most of the people you know wouldn't be able to get that far. They'll think you're a genius.

It looks great, I love the colors & big flowers! I also think you should use it & that way you'll know if it needs ajusting for the next one. Looking foward to see more of your work & also Welcome to Craftster!!

I love your bag! I have tried sewing them by hand, but never really finished one (I can't sew with a machine yet). I think yours is beautiful though and that it's good to test it out to see what works and what you might want to change for the next project. Happy crafting!

A darling bag!  I especially like the strap length and the roominess.  You chose a great fabric.
