i had hand dyed fabric and then used Rae Missigman's new stamps for my background. i had to determine how long i needed the bag to be. once i figured that out i cut out my rectangle and chose my zipper. i had found that super cute black and white polka dot fabric and knew i wanted to incorporate that into my bag; along with the purple sari ribbon i had gotten at here.
so i used the polka dot fabric for the ruffle and then, turned it inside out for the end caps so that it would not be too overwhelming with the black. i did some hand stitching with the hot pink and added a button for the fun of it.
even one of my biggest brushes fits just fine. super excited about my bag. trying to decide if i should make others..... any thoughts on this?
