This was one of my favorite bags to design. A little motif works really does go far.
I love that it doesn’t ‘need’ to be lined, the small items in the bag usually drop to the bottom anyway and the big items will not fall out of the holes.
I have to mention that it does look like a Starling wearing a flower belt 🙂
