Long time not updating here..and this one is a long-overdued UFO (unfinished object). The bag was finished earlier but still need to attach the handles. Was undecided whether the handles are right for the bag. Turned out, it's perfect! The strawberry handles work perfectly with the muted country heart designs of the cotton linen. And the red Japanese yarn dye matches the red heart. Love it! The size is just perfect for my everyday office wear (it has been reduced from the original weeekender-styled size).
The side pleat. It was tough to sew on the red patch when your bag size is small..
