Getting the details right

I realize this is not the first time I'm sharing this project with you. It has been staying in my WIP line-up all because of some finishing details. Okay, it was set aside to languish because I didn't like the first lining I had sewn into it. It bugged me, but I didn't want to waste the lining.
Being added to my Spring to Finish list meant it finally got my attention and is now off the list. I ripped out the previous lining and chose to use the left-over backing fabric from my Bento Box quilt to line it. Ah, now I like it. I also took the opportunity to add a couple of new details: my own label,
and this cute printed ribbon on the zipper pull.

Getting the details right, makes all the difference to me.

  1. It's not until you do that last little tweek that it all falls into place. I have the same with a wall pocket hanging. I made it with purple ribbon as the hanging attachment but it just didn't click. Changed it to pink and suddenly it works!!.
