Because of the overall roundness of the bag, I call it my "Moon Bag." I'm sure I'll find a use for it, even given its flaws of the small opening. I like the fabric selection and I think the piping is cute. I think next month's bag might be a little more useful to me, though.

This month in the Amy Butler challenge, we were supposed to make a Fringed Hobo bag. I opted out of the fringe and used some piping instead. I made the large version of the bag. I'm not entirely happy with the bag. As is typical with many of Amy Butler's patterns, the bag is huge. I don't mind the biggness of the bag. However, the straps for the large bag end up being really short. And I feel like the opening is a bit too small for the size of the bag. I mean, this is a big bag. You should be able to fit some big things in there. But, nope. The opening is too darn small.
