oui or non?


My mother in law came down yesterday and watched Isaiah for a few hours. It was a much needed break for me and I was able to make a lot of progress for the craft fair (that is next weekend, yikes!). Of course, I did get a little sidetracked and had to make a bag that I had wanted to make for a long time. This always happens to me when I'm trying to sew in large quantities. I get bored, yet somehow inspired, and have to start a new project when it's fresh in my mind. Does that happen to any of you? I bet I'm not the only one. Luckily this bag sewed up quickly and I subsequently got started on four others. I thought the front looked a little boring, so I added a flower. I'm not sure though. Do you like it with or without the flower? It's just pinned on right now, but if the majority like it, I'll sew it on.

Have a good weekend everyone!

I like the flower, but could you make it into a pin so that it's removable?

Great orange trim too!

Rachel said...

I love the purse plain. I don't think it is boring at all!

Jen said...

I like the flower as well. It helps set the orange handles.

miss chris said...

I kind of like it without... Gosh I love this fabric combo!

Have a great weekend! xo

I love it both ways. I like karyn idea. could you make some, and sell them seperately?

beki said...

I was going to suggest the same thing! I think the bag is adorable.

Mary Sarah said...

I love your new purse! It's just too cute! Good luck with your craft fair!

Stephanie said...

Oh, oui oui oui. I love that color and pattern combination. I'd leave it as a pin though so people have the option of taking it on or off as the mood strikes.

Michele said...

I love the fabrics/colors...I like the removable flower pin idea.

Breanna said...

I like it both ways. I love it both ways, actually. Good luck with the craft fair!

jessi said...

love the fabric combo! wow! and I'm a definite with for the flower! It just adds that little something.

Where did you get that blue fabric? I love it. I like it without the flower but having it in a pin would be nice so I could change my mind.

African Kelli said...

Not a fan of those flowers. I think the bag is striking as is. LOVE the orange and navy combo. Bravo!

FinnyKnits said...

I love the fabrics so much I can't even pass judgment on the flower right now.

Look at just how you set the fabric so that the pattern would be *just perfectly so*. LOVE.

What if you just leave the flower pinable and then you can decide as you go?

lera said...

I think either was is great. I personally think I like the flower on.

amandajean said...

I love the purse. that style is so stinkin' cute. I would make a removable flower (on a pin) for the purse.

Anina said...

Oui, Oui! I love the flower, but why don't you make it removable like someone suggested. Then it can be used as a pin on a jacket or something too.
Beautiful purse, by the way.

Artsy Momma said...

Yep keep it as a pin so it can be removable. Love the bag!!!! GO YOU!!!!

Mary (craft addict) said...

Oh goodness, I'm such a lemming but I also was going to suggest making it a removable pin. I like it!

Jenn Maruska said...

I like the flower! And I agree with Anina - make it a removable pin, so it can be worn on a jacket while carrying the purse - very chic!!!

: )

Jess said...

Oui!

And you've been blog tagged!

Lindsey said...

I love it with the flower! But I would like it as a pin too - it would look cute on a jacket!

Hip Mama Crafts said...

I'm with the majority Katie. I like it both ways. It is nice to have the choice.
As far as getting sidetracked I totally understand that too!

Shannon said...

Love it! What is the fabric? Love the color combination too. It would be good with or without the flower ~ would depend upon my mood.

Lazylol said...

Oui!

Lovely bag.

Handi Dandi Mandi said...

I like Karyn's idea of making the flower into the pin so you could keep it on the purse or wear it to match your purse.

I like it with and without the flower. :-)

I like the flower, but I would like it up a little bit...closer to the trim.

Shannon said...

I love the bag both ways. Keep in a pin and then the owner can decide. I get bored when mass producing too. I really only like to do one of a kind stuff, then I can move on to something new.

Solidia said...

I say Oui! Oui! et Oui! The color combination is gorgeous and the flower adds just a little something extra. But, as others have said, keep a pin on the back of the flower for the days when you say Non! :)

Felicia said...

Yes, I adore the flower. Such a cute bag :)
