To Embellish or Not to Embellish


I've decided my little cell phone bag needs some embellising but I'm having trouble deciding how to go about it. I thought it might be nice to add a decorative button. This one looks perfect.

Or maybe this one

I have always liked the look of button clusters.


Or maybe a cluster of fancy beads.

Or maybe some of those beads that Dotti made.

I could just be lazy and use the fabulous pin Dotti made me.



So help me out. What is your favorite embellishing technique?

I'm not kidding when I say the second to the last photo jumped right out at me and made me say "oh, oh, that one!" :)

I like the one button look. A nice classy button looks neat and tidy.

I like the top one the best. ;o)

I like the first photo option best... but that last photo looked neat too - and you could change it out often if you only used a pin ;)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

My favorites are the last 2.

My favorite is the top one, nice and simple, the bag is beautiful, doesn't need a lot!

Shana said...

I think I like the button cluster best.

I really like the first and last ones. Like bonnie said, easy change out for a different style with the pin, but the top one is very classy with a simple yet elegant appeal :)

Well, that is really a cool bag! I like either the dark button or the big pin. The light colored things don't help it at all.

Even though it appears to be Dotti-Day on justalittlezizzy, I like the top one the best too...then I would take it one step further and bead the edge of the flap!

This is a tough one because starting from the top as I went down I liked each one a little better. but I'm thinking that the second to last is my favorite.

I like the first one with the simple gold button. And the one with the red bead tassle. Love the little bag idea! Hope to see them in your shop sometime.

I love the first button and the bottom one with the pin is wonderful too!!

Definitely the button cluster!

I like either the second from the top or the very bottom because.....if you open and close the little bag often, you don't want to deal with a lot of "stuff" at the opening....besides, they look good to me!

These are so creative and I like the button clusters and beads, the second and third one the best. They are all so artistic.
