    Another color choice question

    image.jpg

    By now y'all should know I am not good at color coordinating. So...here is the color question of the day!!

    I'm making a small purse that uses only the two fabrics in the photo. A zipper will go in the front (not on the top). Would it look odd to use a zipper that stands out? I do have a black zipper and a white zipper to choose as well if the bright colors don't work. I just wondered if bringing in a bit of color from a zipper would be amiss.

          Green gets my vote.

                I'm going to throw a question back at you.

                How good are you at putting in zippers? Any bits that are off will show up more if you use the contrasting zipper.

                T - is it TRUE?
                H - is it HELPFUL?
                I - is it INSPIRING?
                N - is it NECESSARY?
                K - is it KIND?

                    Red or green with black is awesome. Out of the two I would lean towards the green myself.

                      Green. It's a hot color. Reminds me of spring and summer, grannysmith apples and fresh cut grass. Ahhhh....

                        I made a little bag with some zippers and for the life of me I can't find it in my sewing room. I was going to gift it, but now I want it, because I have been downsizing bags and this one had a ton of pockets. What style are you doing?

                          Well shoot, so much for getting a good picture for you guys to look at. The other zipper is actually orange. I am not a fan of red. I mean I LOATH the color. I can do off shoots, but red.. makes me shudder.

                          Next time I'll try and make sure the color in the pictures I take come out better. Maybe if I had gotten closer to the zippers. Anyhow, green it is. As much as I love the color orange, that green kept drawing my eye. Hopefully tomorrow I can get to making the bag.

                          Karen, I'm using a pattern from Lazy Girl Designs. I've put in zippers before and they came out halfway decent so I'm no too worried. If it starts to look odd, I'll try sewing a bit of the black fabric onto the ends of the zipper to help them blend. We'll see.

                            I'm going to throw in a monkey wrench. I'd add a smaller pocket to the front with the orange, and then use the green for the main zipper. If you are going funky, just go funky and enjoy.

                            I do love red though . . . :-)

                              That's a good idea. Maybe for the second time I make this purse. I really like the watches on the fabric and I'm hesitant to cover them. There is a back pocket to the purse, but it's made with the watch fabric too.

                              Maybe when I make it again, I'll do all different colors. That would be neat-o!
