I Hate When That Happens...



O.k, so I spent the rest of yesterday perfecting the new bag pattern design. I used one of my favorite prints-of which I have not much left at all :( ...

I loved how it turned out! I love the fabric combos! I love how the button looked just off to the side! Lots of 'love' and exclamation points!!
Everything turned out just right...In fact, everything was working out too well...



I should have known :0


I took the bag outside for it's photoshoot...


  

Then I noticed something on the back...(insert ominous music)



Can you see it in the photo below? I'm not sure what it is. I'm not sure if it's bleach (not put on by myself as I don't use bleach to wash my new fabrics). Or is the print supposed to be like this~ mottled white and cream? It's completely unnoticeable indoors-which is why I got all of the way through the entire project without noticing :0
You can only see it in the sunlight. The black letters aren't bleached out...I don't get it. I want to go to the fabric store and see if the print is meant to be this way??


Meanwhile it's one of my favorite projects and I'm not sure if I should list it at a lower price-or not at all- I already have one I'll be using myself ;)( the prototype)...
What to do, what to do...Don't you hate when that happens?!

oh how strange.. and most frustrating... I zoomed in on the photo and see what you mean...
It almost looks like a flaw in the fabric itself?

you know that when I have lace come to the rescue.. but then you already have a finished little bag... and it is so absolutely cute too.. bummer

I did a bag once .. it was really cute.. when I was completely done .. the zipper toggle snapped off like it was a bad weld or whatever they do to make them. It still had the slide .. so I use it for my make up bag... it was so disappointing...

it's difficult to tell from the over exposed front shots but it looks to me like there are more white spots there too. It may just be in the fabric. The bag is still lovely!

It is a gorgeous bag--the shape and the fabrics. I don't know that the discoloration would bother me if it's only visible in the sunlight. Let us know if the fabric is supposed to be like that! If not, I wonder what happened to it.
