Note to Self and The Rest of The Bag

A bit ago I made a bag but only showed part of it. Now here it is in it's completed form. While I like it, I don't love it and I know why. Lessons learned, however slowly!
When I started out making this bag, I wanted the inside to be brighter in color and chose a golden yellow color. I thought it would be better to look into and actually find what one might be searching for. Might be nice in theory, however, when I applied the colors to the outside of the bag, the golden colors migrated through to the surface and rather "dirtied" the surface colors. The best example of the color differences is that the handle of the bag and the bag itself are made of the same color wool. The impact of the gold color is significant.
Note to self: Think it through better

I can see what you mean about the colour. I know the feeling when something doesn't come out quite the way it is in your head. But i love the ingenious way you have attached the handle!
thanks for sharing

i can see what you mean about the gold slightly dulling the colour but i still think you have a lovely looking bag.

as for thinking things through first ... it's something i still struggle with! but i'm happy to play and experiment and enjoy the times when it does work :)
