|Rory’s pirate bag was finished last night, so now I am working on Amelia’s reader bag.
The stitching of her name is complete. We are both quite pleased with the variagated thread.
I decided to audition some different fabric combinations by taking photos, which is a good way to compare a few combinations at the same time. What do you think? Amelia is pretty set on having the fabric with the little birds on it used somehow (you can see this fabric in the 4th version)- I am thinking that it might be nice for lining.
I like either of the combinations with the dark purple fabric, but the one with the roses between the name and the dark purple is perhaps the more interesting.
After seeing them compared as photos, Amelia agrees, so we are going to make the third version, with little bird lining.
