Thank you all for your great comments and congratulations about my ribbon at the competition. I really appreciate it. Thanks!
This is a picture of the completed bargello bag and this makes UFO finish #8 for this year so far. I wasn't sure if it would work out but I really think that my failed attempt at a bargello makes a really nice bag. I am also happy to say that this is another project completely out of my stash (even the lining) so that makes me really happy too. Thanks for the encouragement to actually try this project I am happy to get this UFO out of the closet and made into something useful. My winter jacket is green so it won't really match but I think that it will make a nice summer bag.
