I have been working on this bag since my trip to Israel. It is almost done. I have changed it just a bit by adding some gold bead work to the overlay design. I think it makes the stitching just “pop” right out:)
It really wasn’t hard to attach the beads. It just added some time. I sewed three beads at a time around the overlay design to get this beautiful shine to my bag.
Doesn’t it look great?
I sewed the front and back together and used the hardware from my old bag to attach a strap that I ordered off of eBay. (It hasn’t come in yet, but I will show it all completed soon🙂
I think the back looks groovy as well!
This bag will bring back SWEET memories of my anniversary cruise. I spent hours on the plane and relaxing moments on the balcony working on it. All that is left is the lining and I will write about that on Wednesday or Thursday because tomorrow is the final day for the quilt giveaway and I will be making one last call to anyone who would like to enter.
Thank you for dropping by!
