I finally finished my Starling Handbag! Now I'm working on embellishment and I need your help. I decided to embroider a tree and bird on the front of the bag, because all the shades of blue reminded me of how the sky can be different colors. This first picture really shows how the shades of blue look (not the purply ones you see later. That's just bad lighting. :)
So here are my questions to you:
I love how the tree turned out. I'm debating putting buttons on the top of the branches like this...
but I'm not sure. What do you think?
Also, I'm debating between the embroidered bird or a little fabric bird, pulled from the same blue of the fabric I'm using for the lining. So, you tell me: embroidered bird floating in the sky or fabric bird sitting on the ground?
I'm so glad the crocheting part is done! This bag has been a year in the making and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I'm glad too that I took the time to fix the wonkiness.
One more photo to show the fabric for the lining:
