I finished my bag from yesterday today. But I'm not really satisfied with the result. I don't know what's wrong, but something ain't right!
How ever, I'll keep going from where I left you yesterday =)
I did the attachment to the handle yesterday. A ring, a bead and some leather.
I decided to have a red pocket on the front. And I wanted it to be checked. So I tried to cut of the first layer of the leather and paint it with a pen, it got very dark black. And if I just painted on top of the leather it got a more faded colour. I decided to go with the easy way and just paint on top of it, and I liked the faded colour better.
I picked out a brown yarn to cover the sides and another one to simulate a zipper.
I attached the pocket and glued yarn at the sides.
Both the pocket and the bag itself can be opened and you can put things in it =)
I attached the handle after I've glued some yarn at the sides of the handle too.
I added a decorated tread of some kind at the middle of the handle.
And of course my pregnant lady got to try the purse. She is very kind and never says anything bad about the things I've done, I'm worse and very hard on myself and I didn't got totally satisfied with this as I said, maybe its the design.. I might just don't like round purses =) But it took me awhile (quite a long while) to make it, maybe I can have it in the back somewhere ;)
