Flower Appliqué makeup Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I just went for it, not much planning just started cutting the flowers freehand. Always shocked an impressed with how much time it takes. Would need to sell for $80 to make minimum wage, no beneifits or Obama-care What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just try not to thing and work thru the ugly phase. I'm not in love with it but my such a nice Jewish grandmother of a mother thinks it's beautiful. That's all that matters.

Q&A with Michael Chylinski

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
I guess I could be your mom too since I love the appliqu and yes, everything always takes longer than we plan!
Michael Chylinski answered:
I like it when I make something and I have no real plan I just start cutting and trimming, sometimes not even planning out the colors too hard. Then you fight and struggle, during that is when better design comes to you and all the details that you could do better or add come to light.
Zonie31 asked:
I really like it too! Very nice.
Michael Chylinski answered:
Thank you Zonie31. I know this might sound strange, but I almost feel like I pay Carol to be nice to me ;0) how many students would come back if she didn't compliment their designs? When I get other compliments it validates and makes it that much easier to accept her compliment. ;0) I do feel your genuine Carol it's my lack of confidence that plays tricks on me.
PixiesPipedream asked:
Fresh and funky...love it!
Michael Chylinski answered:
thank you. I will try anything once and then see how I can make it better the second time. Sometimes the more you do with out preconception the better for those happy mistakes. You might not be able to make the original look close to perfect but you for sure will know who to improve on the idea.
