I meant to behave,
there were just too many other options.

Yay! I finished weaving my band, pulled it off the backstrap loom and lined it with a silk remnant from the wedding dress:
Now I want to turn it into a small bag - the question is, how?
I could fold it in thirds - with the top layer serving as the flap - stitching up the back and middle layer to form the body of the purse - add a row of decorative beads and leave the long fringe there... Obviously I would also add a strap.
I could do all of the above, but shorten the fringe somewhat...
Or I could cut off all of the fringe.
I don't have to fold it in thirds - I could fold it like this:
I'd probably cut off the fringe, so that it doesn't obscure the design..
Or some other combination - and the beads are optional too.
What do you think? How should I assemble this purse?
