Bag Entries for Purse Week

I finally made the deadline today for the bag contest going on over at A Lemon Squeezy Home.

This is the bag I entered today.




The front.


The back.



Some close-ups and details.



It's actually the second one I finished today because I ruined the first version of the bag -identical except for the floral fabric used.
The moral of the story is: don't try that new thing you've been meaning to when it's close to your deadline......


I'm very happy with this one except that I altered it's original rounded shape by adding some tucks down at the corners at the bottom and they make it look boxier than what I had in my sketch.



But I like boxy as much as I like rounded......so it's fine.



The large circle on the one side is in fact a pocket. It closes with a magnetic clasp and it's been my favourite pocket for a while now.
It holds quite a few things and pretty securely at that.

My other entry is this one:



They've been both uploaded in the Purse Week Group on Flickr.

Wish me luck!
