So, I've just finished this hawk piece of beadwork. It's going to be a bag with the feather being the flap.( the whip stitch and lazy stitch will complete the look.) I'm debating on a couple of things. Should I use black or brown leather? Also, I'm thinking of adding fringe. I haven't made one like that in a long time but I think the gusset style bag would lend itself to a luxurious look if I had a double thickness of fringe. So what do you think? Opinions please... Thank you!
