This is a xmas gift for a friend in Norway.  She didn't really give me any guidelines for making the bag so I just kind of winged it.  I found both of these fabrics on the same day at the thrift store, and they went so amazingly well together that I had to use them (even though I don't like that sort of plaid).  I really wanted to use studs on this bag, but I held back, lol.  No sense in overkill, hehe.
The bow on the flap is a pin so it's removable, yay! ^_^  I left the tails on it long and uneven cause I thought it looked neat, but am not sure now.  What do you guys think?  I could always shorten and/or even them out.
Oh yeah, pics:

I love the fabric choice, they go great together and the bow is just right it really sets the bag off. Your friend will love it  Grin I wouldn't change it, you did a super job  Grin

Thank you!  Yes the pinks in those fabrics are an ideal match.  I really lucked out when I found them. Smiley

Love the shape of the bag!  And I love the bow, though I might even out the straps.  Hard to decide.  I would probably wait to see what the majority here says.  Smiley
