This is definitely one of my all time favorite bags that I've made. It features all of my favorite things...brown, paisley, dots, and sherbert colors. I'm sure it'll be too busy for many people but I am really pleased with how it turned out. I had a feeling I would love the end product so I purposely designed it to be too small for me so I wouldn't be tempted to keep it for myself. Of course, now I'm just thinking about making a similar one in another size for me. Since I won't be getting a Mother's Day gift (other than a weekend of scrapbooking and meals cooked by Steve) because of our tight budget, maybe I will go ahead and make myself a bag similar to this and wrap it up for myself.
