Hey! This is the same person who asked about the straw/gingham bag. (If that ask got eaten, here’s the run-down: “Thanks for this blog, remember, it’s your blog, take a break WHENEVER you need to! may seem contradictory but I have a question [I’ll get into that question in ths submission])
A straw handbag with red gingham inside (perfect for country lolita, maybe could even work with sweet) has a sequined dragonfly/butterfly on the front. I think the sequins look cheap, but now that I’ve taken a second look, they may not be so bad. So there are now two parts to this question
First, do you think the sequins take away from the look of the bag? I’m even considering taking off the entire dragonfly thing.
Second, if they are bad, do you have any tutorials for how to remove sequins OR how to remove the fabric that the dragonfly is on?
Response from Lolita Tips:
I would personally take off the whole section with the dragonfly. I think it would limit the coords you could use it for and it would look better if you were to do some alterations to it. It’s hard to say for sure without seeing it in person but it looks like if you carefully took a seam ripper you could remove the whole burlap square and keep the red square as a blank canvas. Then maybe you could replace it with something just on the red square. Maybe decorate it with detachable details depending on your coord. You could put a lace trim around it and maybe get flower and fruit pins and brooches that you can stick to it.
