Earlier in the month, I attended a Bag in a Day workshop. Great fun; learnt heaps; built confidence. I didn't quite finish it at the workshop, and I've only just now gotten around to finishing it off *roll eyes shake head*. Admittedly, I have taken it out for a couple of quick trips before now.
The bag was waiting for some embellishments. The embellishments tell me which side of the bag to face out when I wear it, so that my beginners (read : dodgy) interfacing job on one side doesn't show. It's all in the details, all in the details (so I'm sorry about the contrasting red t-shirt. My dear husband was kind enough to model, so I wasn't going to push my luck by asking him to change t-shirts).
The embellishments are courtesy of a lovely store, Kimono house, and made with the same fabric as the lining of the bag. Of course, since I made a flower for my bag Little Miss M wanted one for herself as well. She hasn't asked for the matching bag ...yet.
I don't what it is about pink. I don't normally wear pink. I'm a black, white or denim with a rich colors kind of gal. But when it comes to buying material, I seem to be drawn to pink. Is it a safe color for these sort of girl accessories?
That's Creative Commitment Sewing number 2 for November 2010.
