Opinions Please!

I sewed up the lining for Via and pinned it in in preparation for (ick) hand-sewing it, but I'm still not sure it's quite the right thing. But I'm pretty sure that part of my hesitation is that I have a pair of pajamas that have a fairly similar print to the lining material, so every time I look at it I think, what are my pajamas doing in there? So, objective readers, what do y'all think?

Here's how it'll mostly look when it's being carried around (it looks a little lumpy b/c I need to shorten the lining a bit):

So: Yuck? Good? Good enough?

i think it's good. the colours on the fabric look maybe a little bright and luminescent against the very matt and muted bag, but you know, the fabric will dull down very quickly. and the little violas are just too sweet, i long for bathroom wallpaper with those on.

I really like the lining, it goes well with the outside of the bag.

But if you'll just keep thinking pajamas, then maybe a different lining would suit you better, but I like the floral and the pattern of the outside together very much.

My bag did the exact same thing with it being lumpy. Did you try tacking it down into the bottom corners?

I like the lining too, but I also do not have matching pjs. Additionally, I have a soft spot for pansies/violas, purple & pink, so I may not be the most unbiased commentor. On the other hand, if you're gifting it, I don't think you need to worry about _your_ pjs, just the giftee's!

I've got to be honest, I'm not loving the lining... The bag is so great and a bit sophisticated for the flowery lining. But who cares what I think, what really matters is if you like it!
