The Ball is on Saturday, my lovely vintage frock is hanging waiting to be worn, hair appointment booked and the bag is finished!! Woo hoo. i love bags made using bag frames, but the fear when it comes to the gluing part is pretty immense. It can all go hideously wrong at that point and somehow having made the bag out of silk made the process a lot worse.
But i took my time, and limited the caffeine intake and i am really pleased with the result.
The beading is not particularly intricate but i wanted a simple pretty pattern. I wanted some beading to break up the blackness but not to detract away from the stunning bag clasp.
The photos are not brilliant as i am having severe problems taking good photos at the moment. Maybe i should hand the photography side of it over to my 7 year old son who managed to make a working radio at the weekend!
