~how shabby french lavender bag?~

so peeps, i need your input

i have to make up a bunch of small gift bag favors that are reflective of raggygirl

and i came up with this



a shabby french muslin lavender baggie
(it is white muslin, take my word for it)

of course with a touch of yummy white seam binding ribbon

~so here's my dilemma~


seams all neat and tidy on the inside?


or shabby and frayed on the outside?



i know which way i'm kinda leaning, but would love to know what you think??

I think definitely the frayed edges as long as you can keep them from fraying more. It looks gorgeous either way though!!!

Very nice, Tracey! I love them! A little frayed is nice!

Hi Tracey, I am loving the new look of your blog. Just gorgeous....I think both bags are gorgeous but a little frayed seems to reflect the Raggy vintage Girl..

I like the neat and tidy...looks like more effort was put into it...either way, they are adorable!

I like frayed...what a cute bag!

Your bags are so cute, Tracey. I probably would finish them off so they last longer, but my first inclination was to leave them frayed because that looks seems to be more "in" these days. Depends on how you're going to use them. I love your blog and seeing all your sewing projects. I haven't sewn in months and I SO miss it! Thanks for the inspiration.
God bless,

As a seamstress I know that neat and tidy takes longer. Hmmm. How much is a bunch? You might need to go the quick route of the frayed look. I love both.

Yes, there have been Royal Wedding posts every Wednesday since January. Come on by.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for leaving such a supportive comment.

I think neat and tidy seams! Love the bags so far! I have a bucket of lavender waiting for me to make bags. Just need to get some linen and whip some up!

Love your blog's look!

Shabby and frayed on the outside please!

Lindalou said...

They are both lovely, but my first reaction was the shabby and frayed looked cooler, more raggy vintage.
