Yesterday, I discovered a great purse that I wanted to try. You know, I had seen this pattern before, but thank goodness to Ravelry posters because due to the pictures of their work that I saw, I decided to make this bag myself. I thought I would have been finished today but I cut my finger while washing some kitchen shears and it's mighty sore....and the band aid kept getting in the way.
So here is what I have so far. I had a lining that I was planning to use. It was a cotton fabric of pink, yellows, and greys, but now that I decided to use these black accents, I want some sort of black satin or satin-like fabric. You know the deal with the fabric, so I won't go there. I also can't find purse handles anywhere, but I have this bag of my own that I don't care for, but I love the handles, so I will cut them off and use them for this bag.
When I found those buttons today, I also came across some satin flowers that I thought might work for the red fat bottom bag. It needed something on the front to make it pop. What do you think or should I keep looking? Brown handles and black accents...um....???????
If you're wondering how I spent my day since I haven't been crafting, well it's simple:
1. I re-joined a gym (Curves) on yesterday and had my first workout this morning.
2. I ran errands, and finally bought some milk!
3. The slideshow tells it all:
