Now What...

Those of you that have been here before may remember my custom order for a bridal party. If you don't, here's the short version: Got an order. Made an order. Redid half the order. Have 3 pieces of non-workable order plus 1 extra leftover.

Why the redo? the frames did not quite fit. Nor did they fit the 2nd time around this past weekend...ggggrrrr. I officially do not like metal kiss clasp frames...to make anyway. They are awesome when done correctly. I think my problem this time was simply the thickness...there was too much.

Anyway, here they are, re-matched*, unfinished and without a solid direction of what to do to finish them. Maybe an 3ish inch piece attached to the top for a "stiff clutch"? Or maybe a trim around the top edge and a simple magnetic snap closure? Or even just add handles? Any ideas are welcome...except for scrapping them. I am determined to make these into something :) Maybe take them apart & make a mini quilt piece? Hmmm...



* I wanted them different than the originals, so I matched the main
& linings up differently than the original order
