I really loved this bag to begin with, maybe because it has my favorite green on it, but mostly because I love its crazy collection of images. It was a bargain at $1.99. And it was crying out to be embellished.
I was flat-out sick at some point after I bought the bag and needed something to do while crashed out on the couch besides knitting (what?!). This bead sewing extravaganza is what resulted.
I sewed beads around the name on both sides of the bag -
And I added beads here and there where the design called out for them -
I added these cool little eyelets where there was a funny grouping of little circles in the design -
