Did you ever start planning a project, with an idea of exactly what you want to do, and completely change your mind, as soon as you get started?
I had decided on a bag pattern for my on-going project of making some of bag patterns I have collected, and even knew which fabrics to I wanted to use.
The bag has piping and a contrast flap, so I was going to use these three fabrics. They look great together, and I had two small problems. The fabrics didn't feel very summery and I didn't have any gold hardware in my stash. So, I will file this combination, and add gold hardware to a future hardware order. I still like it, but it needs to be a fall bag.
Second idea: If the Laurel Burch wasn't going to work, how about some Tula Pink?
Definitely more like summer, but I just wasn't feeling this was right, either. The fabric for the piping didn't quite work.
Okay, one more try.
Wow, this suits my mood, exactly. It is bright, summery, and would look great with nickel hardware, which I already have. Now to find a lining.
Yes, that all works. I can see it together as a bright, fun bag, just right for running errands in the warm weather. Now, we just need two more things: Warm weather, and my immediate world to start opening for me, again.
