Brand New Circle Bag!

The latest challenge of the European Etsy Team , hosted by the marvellous Fishes Make Wishes is all about Geometric Beauty.
Since I've been making lots of Circle Brooches lately, I thought it would be a cop-out to just add one of those as my entry....
The point of these challenges is to be inspired to make something completely new.
So, springing off the challenge -but not being able to get away from the Circle alltogether-  I give you:

As the -pretty descriptive- title suggests, it's a fully reversible white cotton bag...with a really big circle on it.

Which just happens to be a pocket.
It's like a giant Circle Brooch, made out of circles in a variety of my favourite red, pink and white fabrics.

Their edges -just like the brooches'- are  unfinished in order to get the shabby chic look that seems to be becoming something of a mania for me lately.

If you turn it inside-out, you get an antique-white natural cotton canvas bag.
Plain but for a square pocket in the same canvas with red stitching.

This is also made to fray into shabby-chicness. 
The straps are long wide and made of the same white cotton used on the outer bag.

Though it's not a big bag, it fits quite a lot because it's shaped like a market bag.
