So, despite them, I was intrigued by this pattern. There are two versions of this bag included in the pattern. A bowling bag and a handbag (that fits over the shoulder). I do have to say that my bag didn't really turn out like I thought it would. I thought the front pleats would be different. I guess it's a little difficult to tell from just the illustration that is on the pattern. Queen of Hearts Bowling Bag and Handbag Pattern by Hot Patterns.
I also wasn't too happy with how the instructions have you construct the inside. So, I changed it up a bit to have my seams on the inside of the bag vs showing on the inside of the bag. It was tricky and involved some hand sewing. I probably couldn't explain what I did either.
The flower was just me playing around with fabric.
