The Arlington Bag

My new fall bag is finally finished!



You may recognize it as a new version of the bag I made last year for fall.



I'm sort of obsessed with it.



The outer fabric is a bright yellow wool melton, and in the inside is a houndstooth home dec fabric from Sew to Speak



And yes, the pattern is coming. Photos are taken, most of the writing is done - just have to get it tested!

I'm entering this one in Christie's Purse Week contest! I feel a little weird about entering again, since I won the contest last year, but Tam and Char said I have to, so I guess I have to. :) Have you submitted an entry yet?
