Verdict's Out

Since I make so many bags I'm always on a mission to come up with something different and exciting, in a artsy kind of way. But alas, some projects come out a little more on the home crafty side. Less artistic and more well, um...she didn't have fabric that matched so it's a little home crafty looking. Maybe I'm walking a fine line between what really works with some of the new bags I'm working on and well, quite frankly what doesn't. I suppose I'm pushing the limit a little bit in hopes of creating things that are truly different. I always want to come up with new ideas that people don't see at every weekend craft show.

Here is one where the verdict is out. I was so excited to make this bag, I was sure it would be amazing. Even when my dear friend and sometimes business advisor gave me the most polite thumbs down ever. Ha Ha. Now, I'm not so sure. I've even put the bag aside for a few days and have pulled it back out in hopes of seeing it with a less attached critical eye. No luck, still unsure.

The front is black and bronze with velvet flocking. The back is black velvet. The front pocket is black velvet with a shock of hot pink duponi silk that forms a band on the pocket. The pink silk is repeated as the lining. (That part I do love.) Then the handles are black and tan little leopard spots.

There is a large pocket on the inside that is made of the black velveteen. Also yummy.

What do you think? Oohh, so different in a one of a kind artsy way or oh dear, 7th grade craft project gone wrong?

Did Picasso kiss a few toads?
