The danger is over!

This is the finished bag.  
The first picture is of the 'naked' bag.  Nick took one look at it and asked what the loops were for above the front pockets (one to hold my mobile phone and t'other for this and that).  He might've known there'd be a rhyme and reason for them!!!!!

In the second picture you can see why I 'needed' a new bag!!!  I wanted to 'show off' my dangles - the ones I've decided to keep for myself!!!!  I've added special charms to these but there will eventually be more dangles.  

The brooch was made using the MOP pattern and I wore this on my winter coat for ages.   Think I'll make a few more of these!!!  I've learnt a lesson about adding tatting to bags - it works a treat for a while but then sewn or stuck on motifs get mucky!!!!  This way I can remove the bits and pieces for a 'freshening up' from time to time!!!  Well, that's the theory!!!!

I'll be adding more dingles, dangles, pins and stuff as I think of them!!!!!

That's a great bag! LOVE those pockets in the front. Your dangles look really pretty on it and show nicely against the denim.

Jane love the purse! And I am like you...I hate it when you can't keep your tatting clean. Wonderful idea to be able to take them off and clean them up!

What a great design! And good idea for the dangles.
