Hi! I need some ideas, if y'all have any? I made this bag:



and because the stencil was so think and rolled etc, I spray-painted it. Then outlined in paint marker to clean it up a bit. Looks like it needs something... can you guys give me any ideas on what to do next?

I like it, props to you.
For ideas on what you could add, i would say 3 small pins with whatever on them in the bottom right hand corner in the shape in a triangle...
Anyways, good luck.

If you could find some pins in the shape of candies, that would be cute.  Other than that, it looks great!!

Thanks you guys! I made the purse out of 50-cents-a-yard fabric from JoAnn's big sale a while back, I do that with all my bag patterns to work out the kinks first. (No sense wasting the pricey material on something I might mess up!) So since it has a few iffy spots, I decided it couldn't hurt - now, the more I see it the more I like it! I'll have to get a pic of the inside lining, it is SO cute, a green dot print.

I have a button-maker, so I think I will do like suggested and make some buttons for it - woowoo! I've been dying to make some buttons anyway.

Thanks guys!

That's cute. I've never had an idea of stencilling a bag *writes down*..
I like it the way it is to say the truth Wink
Good luck on making buttons!

That is one awesome bag!

Wow, it's not often you can find that cheap AND good-looking fabric. Personally I don't think you need to add anything, it looks great!  Smiley

Thank you!
I was shocked too, to find that fabric - it has a little bit of give to it, which I don't like that much, but with all the backing and lining you'd never notice. I am thinking about actually carrying it, the more I look at it. LOL!
