more craftsiness...

Yeah. I'm glad I started on the inside pocket, because I *did* get bolder after some experimentation, and was willing to try something more ambitious for the front flap:



(You can see it up close if you click on it. You can also see a "before" pic of the front flap in the previous post.)

I just knew I'd regret not stopping into the store to pick up a couple more markers. The points on the ones I have are kind of shot, now. I think I want to put something small up top on the front, and then some small things on the lower ends of the strap. But the points I've got now aren't good for small work, I don't think. Hmm. I'd also like to put something small on the bottoms of the side gussets, but I would need to put something squarish inside the bag to give me something to press again; a book? A box? Must hunt around.


p.s. You know what's really yummy? Sangria-flavored soda.

SO GORGEOUS!

Trust you to take something already cool and make something over-the-top awesome out of it.

Thanks, man. I hope that the pattern wears as well as the bag! (It can always be touched up. But still.)

SK was just asking how well it would wear. But I bet it'll stay. Sharpies are no joke when it comes to permanence.

I have this thing for funky, busy designs. I think that mehndi are actually the epitome of that.

It's possible to get a LOT crazier with them:
