I posted pictures of my version of a boho bag then kept looking at it and thinking it just didn't have enough pizazz.
I added 3 more trims and changed the lace piece. I added a very small one around the bottom and sides of the bag. Then I added the bright color fuschia and the long blue trim. The lace piece was from a lace cravat I have had for years. I used to wear this under a suit jacket to dress it up a bit. I changed the flower to a pearl pin and put the flower on the back.
See what you think. I used it today but it felt very floppy to me. I probably should have used some pellon but thought it would be too stiff. You can't win. This was my first one so hopefully I will get better. I will call this my practice piece. I really don't know if I like it any better then before.
The lace looks in the picture like it hangs below the bag but it doesn't. It was just the way I was holding it. It stops before the trim around the bottom.
