but not for *you*



















i didn't really like the last padded bag i made for the polaroid....
so this afternoon, i set off to make a new one.
this time, i used quite a bit of different pieces of lace.
color theme is neutral + a hint of black....
and a bit of paris..... by hand-stamping french scripts and the signature eiffel tower....




























the end product......






















amongst the different pieces of lace i used for this bag,
this is the most "vintage" looking piece....
which i bought online awhile ago.
most of the rest of the lace were from the lace center in tokyo.
i have been quite reluctant to use them....
but i guess they may be happier finding themselves useful than sitting in the dark inside my drawer.....






















added a little water pearl....























.....  and added a piece of the lace monogram with the letter *A*
again, i have been reluctant to use the monograms in my projects....
but then, again, better let it see sunlight.....


didn't take me as long as i thought it would to finish this padded drawstring bag....
the only problem was.............
my polaroid couldn't fit in the bag!!!!!!!!!!!
ooopppsssssssssss
it turned out the measurement i took was wrong!!!!!!
hahaha

hmmmm
i was holding the bag staring at it, thinking what to do with it.....
then i caught sight of my other camera.....
luckily the camera could fit nicely in the bag......

well i guess, my dear polaroid,
you will have to wait.....
