Big Bag for myself

This is a bag to motivate myself (**blink**).

This bag was supposed to be completed in August.  Due to the design of my bag, it is just difficult to find suitable leather holders in Shanghai.  I needed to ask my friend to buy the holders from Japan for me(thanks for her help too ^^).  After she bought it for me from Japan at end of October, I went for an unplanned trip to UK with my husband in November.  I ended up completing this bag in December.  I feel so funny about the "troubles" that came along the way to complete this bag.  After all those "hard times", it's finally done.

I should cut down trips this year, otherwise there will be a lot of unfinished projects for sure. 

My last project for my course is Baltimore quilt.  I am trying to look for ideas now.  Any suggestion ?

Thank you Chera.

I don't remember the size of this bag. Currently the bag is in Shanghai while I am back to my country for holidays. Will let you know about the exact size when I am in Shanghai again ok ?

Cheers ^^

What a beautiful bag. You did a great job. I'd be interested in hearing where you had trouble with this pattern. I love it and would like to track down a copy of this pattern to buy, as you've inspired me and I'd like to make one for me too!
