This is pretty much how the magic happens. I do up a whole stinkin bunch of embroidered pieces, I can't even tell you how many are here right now... 15+. Then I pair each with a print for the back of the bag, then stand and stare at the Great Wall of Fabric and pull out pieces that would "go". Then each stack will grow even more when I sift through my scrap drawers.
The all important aerial view :) About half will be using knitted bits... those don't stack up quite as nicely as the embroidered ones.
I know what I'm doing this weekend!
