Blue & yellow Process #3

This is the 3rd in my series of 'process' posts~a little 'making of' post, of my wristlets and things.

I purchased this fabric the other day at a cute little shop in a cute little village nearby.
Yellow and blue is not a color scheme I usually work with.This yellow has more red tones and the blue is what I would describe as a Royal Blue. Both, colors I didn't have much to coordinate with.

All of the big blue buttons are vintage....
The grosgrain ribbon is French.The ribbon on the left is velvet and vintage. And lastly, the lighter blue is a vintage seam binding.
Almost forgot- gotta choose a fabric for the handle (!)

I love seeing these projects in their unmade state-it makes me anxious to get them finished and see how they turn out...I may or may not list this one 'til I'm out of 'vacation mode'...

Edit: Finished and decided to list.
Here it is :
