    I am not crazy about the trim. I would rather have it without.

    The purse is really pretty and so is the trim. The trim takes away from this purse tho. Do you have another project that you could use the trim on? I would leave the trim off of this purse and leave the cute bird and heart.

    I think it cheapens the look of an otherwise elegant purse.

    I wish the pocket placement was my idea but it was actually a pattern I found. The purse itself is the way I always make them just did the pocket different.

    OK here is a pic of the purse without the trim. Should have included it from the start. The purse is for my friends sister. I too did not care for the trim with these pockets. We may look for another trim or just leave it but I think my friend wants to add something else to it.....we shall see.
    I lucked out on the heart and bird. I got them on clearance at JoAnn's. THe heart was 99c and the bird was $2.97 on sale.

    Ditto!! Love the purse.

    That pocket material is so pretty -- how about making your own trim using that same fabric?

    I, too, think it would look better without.

    The trim doesn't show up very well because of the fabric so unless you add a band of plain fabric and mount the trim on that I would take the trim off. :D

    I think I might leave the top trip off, but that's just my opinion.

    I wouldn't use the trim. Good idea to audition it for a few days...if you're still not sure, either find another trim or remove it. Just my opinion

    Too pretty to add distracting trim, I think.
