My second day in the stitch workshop wasn't as successful as I hoped. I hoped that I would complete all of my sewing for the five bags, and then over the weekend I could just add the leather belts as accent pieces. Because some of the designs didn't allow the belts to be added later, it took a littler longer to work the belts into the design during the sewing process.

I was able to find some great gold fasteners in the CSM Shop that I used to secure some of the leather belts to the clutches. I think I will buy more next week and use them to secure the belts on each bag. It will be another element that ties the bags together as a collection.

My new goal is to finish the bags in the stitch workshop next Wednesday, just in time for the Small Change Sale on Thursday.
