I am going to make a new bag soon. Not for me or anyone in particular, but just because I like making new bags. Doubtless, this will eventually become a problem when I have so many new bags and nowhere to store them and no one to give them to. I could sell them, I suppose. It's like a curse to love making bags but not actually enjoy using them yourself.
I bought this striped fabric from Ikea last month and love its texture. I also like those fall-ish colors together - rose, tangerine and ochre with that sable-ish beige. I put in a pink lining because it sort of coordinated, but I have my doubts that pink counts as fall-ish.
Love the piping, though.
This little pouch is off in the post to someone, but it was also an experiment with this striped fabric to see how I could coordinate some other solids and checks with it. The actual bag I make will be lined, but unlike this one, I want a solid lining. Also the bag will have piping but it won't be chunky like this pouch's so I can't use the gingham for it. Two questions: if you had to pick a solid color (each) for
- the piping
- the lining
what color(s) should they be?
P.S. Haven't forgotten about the birthday party I'm supposed to share. I blame my right hand - it staunchly refuses to click the mouse on the photo-editing software widget thingy. Disobedient twit. By end of the month - promise!
