Messenger Bag and Fabric Selection

I saw one of my favorite people who visit The Quilt Barn this morning, the UPS guy. He brings me fabric presents. OK, he doesn't bring them to me per se. 
I had been thinking about another bag pattern and when I opened the box and saw this, I squealed. 
Perfect perfect. 
We also got in some Ta Dots. This is where I need your help. Do you like the red with grey/black dots or...

 the green with teal dots?

This is the pattern I am making. Soooo, what do you think? Opinions please. And had anyone made this bag and have any tips?

  1. I'm all about the red - Tough choice - you might have to make two bags!!

  2. I love the teal and blue combo of ta dots here .. (the red makes it all a bit too primary for me)

    I've never made this bag but it looks fab and I can't wait to see how it goes for you!

  3. I'd go with the TEAL! VERY CUTE!!

  4. I Like the green and teal but I agree with the first comment; I think you need to make 2!

  5. I loved the green. I think it matches better.

  6. I would have to choose the teal and green but the red would be a good choice also. This bag is super cute. Maybe a class for it?
