I agree BlueSkysAhead that the background could be higher contrast. By the time I found my camera, it was late at night and I had to manufacture a spot to take the picture. You can't even see that every seam is topstiched - I didn't want to use contrasting thread, just to sharpen the shape. As soon as the contest is over, I'll be adding better pictures to the review. A better one of the pattern as well to give people ideas for their own bags perhaps.

Nice bad. I think you needed a different background in your pictures. It blends in with the wood right now. I speak of this knowing NOTHING of photography. So just my 2 cents worth.

Thanks txcwgrlmom - and thanks for the identification. I bought the fabric as a remnant in a thrift shop and the internet seemed full of conflicting identifications. I'd guessed maybe cheetah, but went with 'animal print' in the review.
