So I have been working on this bag, off and on, for the last month or two and am.finally.finished. Take a look at some previous posts regarding this labor of love... just to get an idea of where I was coming from and what brought me to this amazing and rewarding place of completion. It's just one of those things, when you accomplish something that you feel has worth (to you or others) or has that something special/unique. That is this bag for me.
Please excuse my mannequins... In retrospect, I should probably dress the mannequins so that they aren't so blatently nakie buuuuuut I was in a hurry to get these pictures taken so I could schedule this bad boy and scamper off to bed.
What do you think? Was this bag worth my time? Should I stick with the smocking and the individual blocking for the base of the bag? If I have a direction, I can work on making things more efficiently.
