(they're the same bag on different backgrounds for emphasis)

This is my first attempt at a non-basic rectangular-tote bag! I originally drew up a different style for this bag but as I was making it, I improvised a bunch of different things--like putting the straps on the outside & adding the lovebirds decal. I really like this bag, even if the stitching is super messy. There's two pockets on the inside. Hopefully next time I'll make it better, alot of it was trial and error because I wasn't sure of the order to put the pieces together in. I must've ripped it apart and put it back together at least 10 times. But the end result was totally worth it Smiley

I've only done a few projects which i blog about on blogspot! http://starshinex3.blogspot.com/ Let me know what you guys think, thanks!!

That is an adorable bag.  I love the pleats and the shape of the yoke of the bag.  The birds add the final adorable touch.  Great job!

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.
