Organza-Embellished Two-Layer Purse- Part 3 of 3


The newly narrowed bag...

...turned right-side out again.

 
A close up of the organza stripes.



Tucking the lining into the bag and pinning it in place...

...prior to top-stitching. 
 
Adding a leather strap and buttonhole (front)...

 
...and back.

 
The finished bag...



...with a matching iridescent button...
 
...and shown here with her two 'sisters'! :)

 
As you can see...

...my 'trusty' organza fabric did not disappoint. :)

The torn strips 'melted' into the project during felting...

...providing an iridescent shimmer.

I was especially thrilled to find a button in my stash...

...which so closely matched the appearance of the organza.

It's curious, isn't it (looking at the last photo)...

...how green leather accents seem 'right' for each of these three disparate bags?!

Gorgeous again Heather :) That button was absolutely perfect.. like it had been made to go with the organza!
As you say, quite amazing how the green leather goes with 3 such different bags.. but my goodness it certainly does!

Green is quite a friendly colour which looks good with a lot of others, so I'm not surprised, but they do all look good together!

Mattie--Thanks!
Sandie--It was fun to see them lined up like the 3 Bears! :)
Rachel--I like that idea of green being a 'friendly' color!
