Not Happy with the Finished Jean Bag

I had such high expectations for my first attempt at a zipper-closed jean bag.

I finished it last week, but I am not happy with it.

I had planned to give it to mom, but it's not up to my standards -- i.e. the scrutiny of all of her friends! LOL.

I have no pattern for these bags--I just wing it. Somehow I sewed a double gusset, which is not all bad. The bag is very roomy. But the zippered top is very sloppy.

I do like the strap and it happens to be extremely comfy to carry. It's the perfect length for my shoulder! I have one almost just like it, but this one is bigger and has the zipper--sloppy as it may be.

The back side of this has a yellow tulip.

Sorry, mom, but I will have to make another one for you. I can't have you carrying an inferior handbag!

Earlier today I was skimming through this magazine.
I came across an ad for these aprons:
They are made of terry cloth. How practical is that? I also love the big ric rac and the fabric used for the ruffle. If you enlarge the pic, you can see the web site where they are sold. I have not visited that site yet, but will as soon as I finish this post.

I like the bag! Zippers are not something I've mastered but hope to one day.

The aprons are really cute, I love that it comes in kids sizes too.
