    I finished this purse today. I bought this fabric before I decided to make a different kind of pocket. Now that I have done the pockets I am not sure the trim at the top works. I pinned it on and decided to just let it sit for a few days to see if I change my mind about putting it on.

    What do you think?? Should it go or stay??

    I think it gives the bag some character! Its rather eclectic, and I like it! Love the heart an bird accessories as well, where did you find them?

    I think that the trim may be too narrow -- it can't compete well enough with the size of the pockets. But the color of the trim is wonderful.

    I like the bag itself, and the material choices are lovely.

    If it was for me, the trim at the top would have to go - because I would catch it on something and lose some of the beads - and then it would look not so nice.

    I also think the trim sort of disappears into the print and doesn't show up/off very much.

    for myself i would go without the trim. but, the trim would work for someone who likes the eclectic, vintagey fee. i do like the bird and heart trim. adorable. cute bag. cute design.

    I think it would be just as pretty without the trim.

    I personally would not add the trim as I think it takes away from the pretty fabric.

    I think it is too much with the heart and the bird.

    Honestly, save the trim for another purse. The trim is beautiful, but isn't focused on enough with these prints, too busy.

    Very nice purse, I would not use the trim. Just my opinion.

    I think it's a good idea but the wrong color. I would save this trim for a pink bag.

    Take the bag to LQS and audition some other trims, maybe in a blue tone.

    NICE BAG EVEN WITHOUT THE TRIM!
    peace :D

    I think it works. I love the other things on the pocket.

    The final test is do you like it. Get six to eight feet away and squint at it. That is a good test.

    i would like it a lot better if it went fully behind the square with the heart in it. i think without the trim at the top, the square would look out of balance and lonesome.

    Without the trim. Save it for another bag, probably for a solid color.

    I think it would be fine either way. I don't like the color of this one though unless it's just showing up on my computer as not really going with the fabrics. So in this case I would leave it off.

    I wouldn't use the trim -- it doesn't need it.

    I also agree that the trim does not work for me either, But I do love the trim for another project.

    I love your purse especially the unusual pocket. Was that your own idea? As for the trim I think I would have used it around the pocket in some way. Your purse is pretty enough with out the trim on the top.
