My February bag

Hello my friends.
My bag is complete. Ready to use :)
I had to show all angles of my lovely bag.
The front. 


The back with a pocket.


Inside showing one of the two pockets. A girl can`t have too many of those.
Plus the cover of the base insert to keep the shape when in use.


A  clip  to close.


And a close up of my stitchery.


I was waiting to show the bag I`m making for a friend. This is nearly there but will need to reach her by post before I can show. Maybe next month when I blog here next.
Loving every ones colours and ideas for their bags.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
