amy butler inspired me


so i just entered a competition here and i had much fun doing so, this really got my head in a spin and i really like what i came up with...its been ages since i made a bag, they used to be all i once made, but recently my head has been into different things..but not anymore...I'm bursting with ideas..so it had to be inspired by Amy butler, her fabrics, her life or whatever we felt when we thought of her style...now my bag does not use any of her fabric..i think that would have been a bit obvious and predictable. so i re-visited a style i used some years ago...and that is the embroidery hoop as a handle,and i combined it with something I'm into at the moment, and that's ribbons and braids..and i love the end result...oh and its now in my etsy for sale..if you want it...i hope someone does ?..and as far as the competition goes i will just have to wait and see, if you follow the above link you can see the other entries in the flickr group...im just thankfull i have re-found some passion for what i can do.
