A bit cocky?

Early this week I asked your advise,
Should I make the bag with the stripes or the blue fabric?

spring bag?

Thank you all, I got great advise!
Some of you said stripes but most
of you said to use the blue fabric,
so I started
cutting it!

But something didn't feel right.
The cockyness in me said ho, stop!

Later I went to our mothers (famous) attic and there my eye catched another fabric...
something else.
And this is how the turned out now,

How colorful this is!

No stripes or blue fabric but red!
I hope you don't think of me as a too cocky person?!
Becouse it's fabulous to get great advise!
I guess everyone has to be a cocky every now and then.. (lol)

Spring birds bag

Both springbags are finished now and will be in the shop tomorrow.

Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Wat een prachtige tassen! Ik vind de stof die je nu hebt gebruikt echt prachtig erbij. Goede keus, en soms moet je gewoon een beetje "eigenwijs" zijn denk ik, dat is alleen maar goed voor je creativiteit.
    Een heel fijn weekend zusjes.
    Lieve groet van Ester

  4. Both are stunning, so your own instinct was best.

  5. The blue fabric would have looked great, but I think you really found a wonderful look. I love blue, but red is a close second. Good job!!!

  6. You did the right thing following your creative instinct!!! The red looks fantastic!
    I love the second bag too with the birds - beautiful!!

  7. Je hebt helemaal gelijk. Deze rode stof past er perfect bij.
    Knap werk hoor. Ik ben begonnen aan het naaien van een tas, maar dat valt nog vies tegen!

  8. Excellent choice Heleen! The red is perfect! I really love the birds too. :)

  9. mooi, moi, mooi ,,die tweede is ook prachtig hoor ...zou moeilijk kunnen kiezen ;-)

  10. Goede keus, die is inderdaad nog mooier!

  11. je moet uiteindelijk altijd je eigen gevoel volgen. en maar goed dat je dat gedaan hebt: de tassen zijn geweldig!

  12. Both bags are perfect!

    Best wishes,

  13. Hij is ontzettend mooi geworden! (mislukt er eigenlijk wel eens iets bij jullie?)
    Fijn weekend verder!

  14. Not at all Heleen, I do that with my husband all the time!! I ask him what he thinks, he gives his opinion and then I do the opposite!! :)
    Both bags look great!

  16. They are both stunning bags! I love the shape of this design...is it new for you? Very pretty. I have a friend who loves birds and I'm going to send her here right away to see that fabulous bag.

  17. Too Cute!! Great work. Love to have me one of those bags!!! Thanks for sharing.

  18. Helemaal goed! Zo veel beter dan blauw of streepjes.
    Toptas hoor!

  19. Obviously you just needed to find this new fabric to jump at you. Your new bags are beautiful. I love the little birds on the bag.

  20. I love the bag with the birds! I'll be watching for it in your etsy shop! Will you be doing more with birds?

  21. Haha eerst advies vragen en dan gewoon iets heel anders doen :) Maar goed gedaan hoor. Staat heel mooi het rood.

  22. My personal standing ovation to your red fabric choice!!! It's great!! Tiziana

  23. Beautiful once again Heleen! Is the bag with the birds already reserved?

    Hugs en groetjes ~

  24. I love, love, love your purse! It is PERFECT!! I looked in your store and saw that it is already sold. So sad for me!

    I lost your blog for a while as I changed computers, etc. Saw you tonight on Nicolette's comments. I had to visit and 'bookmark' you.

  25. The red is perfect Heleen!! Lovely bag!

  26. Lovely! And you're so right to do your own thing...the red is suits your fabric very well.


Thank you :)
Groeten, Heleen en Corry
