Oak Park Bag

Look what I made! 

Simone of the Quilting and Stitchery Diary selected me in her give away.  I choose the Oak Park Bag pattern as my prize!  Boy!  Am I ever glad I did!  It is a fantastic pattern by Stephanie of Loft Creations,  so easy to follow and everything fit together exactly.  The hardest part was finding the rings for the handles.  I made mine in some fall colours from my stash.   The name Oak Park made me think of trees and fall.  It soon will be fall.  In fact, it looks like fall outside today - overcast with showers.  Tonight the temperature will go down to 14C, so it will be cooler.  Great for sleeping!

I had to take the photo inside, but I think the colours are pretty close to the real thing.

What a great choice on the fabrics... and I agree that Oak Park first made me think of fall colors. Great bag!

And made that without the help of any of the furry creatures?
Great job. I love the fall colour design.
And indeed great to carry a cat in.

I also made the bag and the pattern works like a charm indeed!
