~you can tell how small it is here~

Decided to go with the bow. Daughter # 1 and a few others, suggested the circle pin, but I thought the faceted sparkles in the bow had a touch of yellow, or perhaps they were just picking up the flannel? Either way, I thought it went a little better. I'm sure I'll incorporate the circle into another one-because I just went out and bought more clasps!! In different sizes too.

I learned something about the construction- I should probably either stitch, or glue. I did both :0.

Because these clasps have holes for stitching the bag to the clasp, you almost 'have to' stitch, & I wanted to add a contrasting color, but I didn't think about the fact that if I glued the bag in first it would make the stitching vveerry difficult. There's almost no other way to do it (?)Has anyone made bags with clasps before, and know a good way to do this?


 I'm anxious to get started on the next one~
 Stay tuned ;)
