Artful Bag

 Frosted Petunias Artful Bag Challenge for the month of March was Embellish.   I started with a plain little green bag. Cute, but not Special. The oriental pin has been laying in my bead re-do pile for years. I added more beads and made another hangey down bead thingey that attaches to the strap. It will probably drive me insane the first time I use it, but looks cool just for the sake of ART.

 This is a up close look at the handmade pin and my ho hum attempt at beading.  To see all the bags that got a face lift this month, check out http://frostedpetunias.blogspot.com/2011/03/march-artful-bag.html

The texture on the bag is the perfect background for your pin and I love the hangey down bead thingey. My monitor can't pick up the green in your bag but I bet it's fabulous with the beads. Truly a great artful bag. Thank you for sharing :)
