Anyway, I digress...here is the Cosmo Bag:
There are a lot of details I am really enjoying about this bag...the big exterior side pockets are perfect for stashing keys, your phone, other bits and pieces that always get lost in the bottom of your bag. I especially love the little strip of contrasting fabric at the top of the pocket that also makes up the pocket lining.
And the closure is something I have never seen before, the pointed end and chunky loop add a funky look to the bag. The button is supposed to be fabric covered but I didn't have any big enough. This blue button was my "makeshift" button, but it has grown on me and I think I'll keep it there.
It also gets my "big bag" tick of approval! I am really pleased with the fabric I chose for this bag. Erin McMorris is one of my very favourite fabric designers and I don't think she gets enough praise for her awesome work. I wanted this bag to have a bit more of a classy look, but still funky - so that I could take it to the beach or out for dinner and the green is really making me happy :)
