out of hibernation
Does anyone remember this bag... I barely remember making it, but obviously I did!
I had to do some searching to find the original blog post...
and eventually found it here
nearly two years back!!!
Now for the really embarrassing part - I DIDN'T FINISH IT....
sure, it looks nicely finished in the photo - but open it up, and you'll soon discover that there is no lining...
I think I got all stressed out about how I was going to line it, whether I was going to line the flap as well... just trying to get my head around the logistics of it all. Plus - I LOST INTEREST in the bag, because... well... it's just too girly!!!
Honestly don't think that this original photo does the colour of the bag justice. In real life it is a much more intense looking pink. Then when you add those flowers ( which seemed like a good idea at the time) it's all just way too much...
Might need to rethink the embellishment while I am working on the lining.
Or else leave the flowers just the way they are, and pass it on to someone way GIRLIER than moi.
I just went and had another look at the bag
Even if I keep those flowers... I need to ADD something... another colour perhaps... just to take the nasty EDGE off all that pink.
Not that I mind pink in general - but too much of a good thing can be SCARY!!!
Ugh! I think I hate the flowers.
I feel so much better now that I have that off my chest...
