I’m, I guess, content with my bag.  It looks good and is functional, but I get so frustrated by the ‘home-sewn’ quality of notions that I can get my hands on and my lack of experience sewing bags finely.  My bags always look home-sewn to me.  Gah!  
I think it’s a combination of materials chosen, notions available, sewing machine techniques and pressing equipment.  I’ve seen a very few beautifully sewn bags on PatternReview, but they’ve been rare.  I just wish I could make that skill leap. 
Happy things instead.
I’ve been gathering Rowan yarns for a Kaffe Fassett cardigan from Rowan 31.  This is it on Ravelry.  It’s a lovely combination of wide stripes of purples and reds.  A lot of the colors are discontinued, so I’m approximating madly.
They’re like candy kisses.
