Debra said DD might want the bag back once it was embellished - she wants it back already. I am only allowed to embellish it if it ends up looking 'goth'! I decided I wanted the stitching to make it's own mind up rather than having to plan it all out first and I could not, therefore, guarantee 'goth' so it has been reclaimed. Funny how now I want it she discovers that she really liked it all along. Anyway on the positive side the bag, which has languished unloved since completion, is now being used.
I will charity shop for a old pair of jeans to use - so I am starting again, this time from scratch!
