To Embellish or Not to Embellish...


That is the question. I made this little felted purse the other day and have been going back and forth about adding an embellishment. I could add a felted flower, a flower and leaf, or a ribbon bow, but I'm just not sure. I am leaning toward nothing at the moment. The bag is not all that big (8 1/2" wide, 5 1/2" tall and 3" deep) and it does have the busy floral lining... What do you think?

I thought it might be fun to try the new poll feature blogger just added, so let me know what you think. All you have to do is select one of the options in the poll - it's in the sidebar under the cake pictures. It is easy peasy, so let me know what you think by voting.

I think that purse is adorable! I would ask you how you made it, but there'd be no point. My talents probably wouldn't extend that far! lol It's gorgeous - with or without a ribbon or a flower. (Although I did vote for a flower, but that's because I never know when to say ENOUGH!).

Cute bag! I voted for the flower and leaf.
That dress you had in your previous post was GORGEOUS! I am so not a dress person and could never pull it off but it sure would be gorgeous, especially with your coloring.
Very nice!

To be embellished or not to be embellished -- doesn't sound as poetic as the original to be or not to be, but oh, so , important! Good luck -- I always have a terrible time making those decisions.

It's adorable already by the way!
You have a very pretty face! I saw your picture in your previous post ;-) I am sure anything you wear is very nice on you.
