This is what cammed to my mind when I read about Spring bag challenge.
I'm not to happy with the picture so I will describe this bag as if you have never seen it.
It is made from thrifted brown velvet curtain and green fabric. It is fully lined with the same green fabric that you can see on the vines (stuffed with cotton strings). It have asymmetrical flap and 2 pockets. Main flap and the pocket flap close with stems of vines that go through button wholes. I must admit it is more wonky then things I normally saw but I like to imagine that it adds to "organic" look Grin

I hope you will like it.

I'm really happy that you all like it, your comments.
 That bag is very different from the bags I usually make, I was trying to forget about practicality and "what will people think" your comments prove that It was well worth it.
 I had lots of fun macking it, and now I'm being reworded fore it, I'm so lucky Cheesy.

OH WOW, I love it!
I especially like that brown with that shade of green, i have some brown cord that colour and ive noticed that next to some colours, the brown looks very erk, but it looks great with that green!
And, I love the idea od the bag too!
and the asymetric flap reminds me of Dior's Saddle Bags or whatever theyre called.

That is a supercool very artistic bag. I love the vines and the color and textural combinations are really WOW! Thanks for showing it to us.

I often am not happy with my pictures, so I completely understand your frustration! Smiley
