What is being worked on

COPYRIGHT

I am working on this small lady's purse/bag
It will arrive on www.theodoracleave.com in the pattern format as a Button Story
ie it will have layouts, simplistic instructions & the button..or will that be buttons ???? 
Add's to the base cost if I do 2 buttons...

Now that done... 
I have designed these using felt, soft soft divine felt....
Look at the difference the same item changes with different coloured felts & buttons .
I want to play with the button collection to change the view again..with perhaps the oblong flower pot ..a twig bird ....
Cats perhaps or that dog....???
When I gather some time later in this day I will see...what works.
I was going to make that grand statement "Not all the buttons will work" but I am thinking....with a different shape & size add on panel they just might ...
***
You see this is always some of the behind scenes thinking & experimenting .... painting a different colour, finding more felt colours & things I prefer....
I learnt this fairly easily when I started out doing markets...when imported patterns & men with scroll saws were scarce...
I'd buy one precious cloth doll pattern at Berrima Patchwork & make it up in many different fabrics & hair...without apron..add a thing in hand etc... same with wood. I often could get my hands on one doll shape & same deal paint different colours ..different hair...
So now when I design anything I am always veering over to the lateral thinking....
These are exciting & just a lovely change & something I have been going to get to for a long time & this layout has been drawn for several years...
When I painted much more volume ...
there was not often time to go play...
