It's all in the details

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.
