Fabric Bomb Revealed

You may remember that I was the lucky recipient of this fabric bomb from Elizabeth recently.  Using the items I received, adding only sewing machine thread and the yellow cotton lining fabric, I completed a tote.  I cut up the fabric and sewed it together and cut it up again and sewed it back together. I used the red variegated thread to stitch a feather stitch line, then added detached chain stitches in green floss.  I made three yo-yos and tied the ribbon into bows before I stitched them down with the green heart buttons. I stitched a line of blanket stitches along one seam, then added the beads and more detached chain stitches.  I put the lace trim around the top edge of the bag.  The bag is about 16 inches tall and 14 inches across.  How did I do?
