it's not finished yet!
It's not as though I haven't been trying. I just don't seem to be able to make progress that I am entirely happy with.
So - here is the way the bag looked last week. There wasn't a lot to do - just embellish and line it.
I wanted to embellish first. Partly because that is the most fun. But also because then I would have a better colour guide for choosing the lining.
Easier said than done!
I must have tried at least 20 variations with this bag. I think I'm getting there now, but I'll need to take a break and look at it later in the month, with fresh eyes.
The main embellishment is this flower - which I think I like... but I have been working with it so long now, that it is starting to feel a bit 'ugh'
And here it is on the bag. There are two photos, one with red behind the flower... and one without it. I think I will need some red... but not as much as in the first photo. It needs to be thinned out a bit.
There's also the option of putting the flower in the top centre of the bag... although I don't like it as much that way.
So - alas - no finished object... but I am making progress!
Ah, the joys of the TRIAL and ERROR method...
