Progress Report


I have done quite a lot more work on my bag for the quilt show. I'm not sure about the chain on the side. It may be a bit too heavy for the phone case. I have some blue drawstrings or silver beads that might work as well. I will put something similar on the opposite side to hold the change purse. The back is the gold fabric with pockets of the striped fabric. I didn't put any words back there because I ran out of the rust fabric. Right now I am dyeing some blue fabric for the lining. I'm not sure I like the knot in the handle. I may just sew it down at the right length.
If anyone has any ideas on how to further embellish it I'd be open to suggestions. The main problem is that I am out of all the challenge fabrics and there is only a bit of the gold left. It rather limits the options.

I haven´t got any suggestions how to embellish anymore such a nice-looking bag, although I agree that the golden chain looks a bit too heavy. Maybe a ribbon instead? With bells? I do like your letters and I am sure the other challenge ladies will be amazed. Take care.

Looking very nice! Perhaps the chain is a bit heavy, the drawstring might be nice or the silver beads.
I quite like the knot in the handle.

Why don't you fold it in half so that the bag is really plain when you carry it, but really fun when you open it? The Bag lettering looks heaps better now with the outline...

I like the knot - it seems I am forever tying a knot in my purse handle in an effort to get it to a length I want.
