Hello Again!
 I made another of the Coneflower Cross Body Bags from the Carried Away Pattern Collective, Bag of the Month Club. This one was made for my Mom. I made her another bag years and years ago. She was in desperate need of a new bag since hers was getting ragged. She liked the style of this bag but asked that it shut a little lower. I did that for her. It was a bit tricky doing that and keeping the cat below the flap. The fabric was in squares so I ended up piecing together the top bit above the cat so it wouldn't have another cats butt cut off above it.  Tongue
 Since it was for my Mom I wanted it to look extra nice so I matched the metallic gold of the fabric with all the hardware. I had tons of silver tone already but it just didn't look right.
 She absolutely loved the bag. I think it turned out really nice. It looks so much better in real life but I was in a hurry to get pics so I could wrap it up for Christmas so these are the best shots I got.
 Now I need to get back to work on the November bag from the club. I am so far behind because I made so many of this pattern.  Cheesy  Oh, and even though my goal was to make all the bags out of stash fabric, I bought this fabric. I figured I already made two out of stash fabric and this was for my Mom, who happens to be amazing!

 This was my Moms favorite cat. It's officially the front of the bag but I don't think people will really turn the flap towards tehmselves so I call it the back.
 

 Open, with the gold magnetic snaps. LOL!


and a blurry side shot, sorry.


 Thanks for checking it out!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Gorgeous kitty bag; that is one amazing fabric pattern--I've never seen a cat rendered that way before either, kind of a peacock-like flair.  If a real cat could be bred with a coat like that, you'd be making money, hand-over-fist, for the rest of your life breeding it!  Mommy had a very talented  and thoughtful daughter!

that's really beautiful. I thought the cat was actually painted onto a leather bag.
