Loud print for a silent auction

My mom asked if I would sew a bag to donate for a silent auction that will benefit the pregnancy help center that she works at. I was more than willing to help out the cause and went through my fabric stash to find the fabric. I settled on some loud Alexander Henry prints for the outside and a coordinating solid for the lining.
The finished size is about 15x19" and is bigger than I expected it to turn out. I was using a Japanese pattern as a guideline but was improvising many of the steps and trying to convert measurements from a picture. I lined the bag and straps with cotton batting so it has a nice soft feel. The bow in the front is in a casing and can be pulled tighter to close up the bag more.
The corner pockets have elastic on top and wrap around the sides of the bag.
The lining has 3 pockets
Some close ups of the interesting fabric. Everything girly from perfume to lipstick.
an I-Pod???? Not sure why that is on there
Hope you like it mom! I'll mail it shortly.
