Follow pattern and ask questions when not sure about something.
I am a great fan of Ricky Tims, will have to see if anybody is stocking his fabric in the UK. Polka dots are very much "on trend" - had to go to London recently and happened to past Selfridges. Talk about spots before the eyes, every window had an installation by Yayoi Kusama promoting Louis Vuitton's polka dot bags. There was even an oversized statue of the artist over the main door. If you do a search for "Louis Vuitton at Selfridges London by Yayoi Kusama"and scroll down for images you will see what I mean - your bag is kinder on the eyes! Happy bag making.
Thanks Gog. I am in West Australia and polka dot fashion has'nt reached here as yet, apart from Ricky's fabric. I bought the fabric from a store that hosted Ricky Timms a few weeks back when he came to Perth. We are always behind Europe in fashion maybe due to seasons. What you are saying means I am ahead of the Australian fashion scene :) I had a look at Selfridges and looked up Kusama on Wikipedia. I agree it is a bit overwhelming and I wonder if it doesn't get boring to do only red/white scheme polka dots? How easy is it to get famous these days? Have a wonderful day.
I love the shape of the bag and the very cheerful fabric!!
Very well done.

Thank you for the link up; I was unaware that it was on pattern pile. I made it in a sew-along with a Yahoo Group and it is my preferred bag.
