February Bag Finished


I finished my bag and I love it so much!

 Front

and back - hanging on my long arm!  You can see I added a strip at the top - that would be because I tried to make the bottom the top lol.  I sewed in on the top thinking it was the bottom to make a flat base and cut off the corners.  So I had to add a strip to make it work, but I think it looks great like that!

 On to the SKOW March pincushion!
