I spent the entire weekend in the craft room selecting fabric combinations for my patchwork handbags, cutting handbag pattern pieces, and playing around with my latest handbag design. It feels as if I've accomplished next to nothing. Looking around, there are still mountains of unfinished projects littering the room. The only change is that some of the piles are much higher than they were last week. Sigh. Things usually get worse before they get better, right? Humor me, won't you. *grin*
Thank you for your lovely comments about my latest handbag and for your feedback about my recent computer woes. I appreciate that you take time to stop by each day to see what I've been up to. I really do enjoy reading your comments. I'm way behind in my replies, but I'm slowly catching up. If you haven't heard from me yet, I promise you that I'll be stopping by soon. After all, I can't let myself miss the opportunity to see all of your lovely blogs and projects.
I wanted to see what this handbag would look like if I placed the yo-yo posie on the left side instead of on the right. Since I was experimenting, I also changed out the fabric to a more sophisticated print. A handbag with a large yo-yo posie on it usually warrants cutesy fru fru fabric (like my first handbag pictured below) so I wanted to see what a more sophisticated print would do to the design. I think the new fabric combination works well. I'm going to try it next on a more modern retro print(oxymoron) to see what it will do to the design. What do you think? Posie on the left? Posie on the right? I'd appreciate your opinion on this one because I simply can't decide.
Here is a close-up of the yo-yo posie.
The original handbag for comparison.
It looks like it's going to be another wonderful day in paradise. Beautiful blue skies with a few fluffy cotton candy-like clouds rolling by. The only thing missing is the cool weather. What I would give for cooler weather!
Have a fun and creative day.
