I made the pattern with a flap and a TON of pockets on the inside! The yellow flower on the front was some trim that Bonnie had sent with the fabrics and I twisted it in on itself and created a sort of sunflower! The next pic is of the back. Here I did mostly stitching, but there is some beading, double thread, knotted every few stitches for security, etc. I just can't stay away from beads! LOL!! Then the next pic is of the front under the flap and then a close up of the flap. Sequin flowers, lots of beads... one of my trees...LOTS of fun! I enjoy this yearly event and very much appreciate Mona picking up the coordinating of this, this year. Thanks again, Mona! You're awesome!

Stunning bag! Love your stitching and beading. The colors remind me of a wool cq quilt I had on my bed as a child.
