How do I correct floral pattern in bag.

I am kntting market bags all in one - From handle down to base, I knit a few extra rows to mark bottom/base of bag and then start knitting up to end off at second handle.
I found a really nice flower pattern, but when I reverse the rows for first half of bag, the pattern whilst looks the same flower shape, the detail either side is different than the half that I knit from Row 1 up to Row 10.
Flower head, stem and two branches/leaves either side. The pattern is defined by K2tog, ssk etc.
I've tried many different ways to have the pattern look the same, but cannot understand why it would turn out slightly different looking knitting Rows 10 to 1 from Rows 1 to 10.
Are you able to shed any light?
Or will I simply have to knit the two panels (front and back) separately and sew up side, base and other side (in lieu of just sewing up each side?)
I've attached pics of both sides of the bag.
