I thought it would be fun to share some of the bags that have been completed so far. If you're still working on yours, or haven't started yet, you still have a bit of time. Maybe these versions will inspire you to finish yours up. You can also refer to the sewalong after the contest is over.
Crystal of The Cloth Albatross showed me this fabric before she started and I wasn't totally sold, but she did wonders with it. Her Hey Mercedes bag turned out beautifully. I love the pretty lining and antique brass hardware she chose.
