One Down. Two More To Go.

Just laying there flat and unfulfilled, she looks rather sad.  But she is done.  This gift bag that is destined to bring joy to a recipient is completed.

The contrast of the sparkly knitted ribbon  woven with matte gross grain ribbon excites me.  There are times when too much glitz is uncomfortable simply because it is all the same level of "wow."  In this instance, the humble ribbon in that green shade that goes so well with the gold undertone, lets the sparkle be the star without having to compete with anything else.

For a while, I considered using a gold cord with beaded tassel as the drawstring.  But in the end, simple won out.

One bag completed.   And it only took about 5 minutes to move this from the Work In Progress column to the Done column.
