The luscious velvet ribbon arrived yesterday, so Veronica is on her way to being finished.
I got two colors, one lighter and more orangey the other duller – more gold. I wasn’t exactly sure which would match my fabric and I didn’t have the patience to wait for samples. Have a look. The yellow floral fabric underneath is the outside of Veronica. The inside is equally pretty. ;)
I decided to use the Marigold color. The Gold color will show up in another project soon!
BTW – Here is the one and only Veronica Lake. I am guessing that she is the inspiration for the name of this bag I’m making. She’s the originator of the infamous “peek-a-boo” hairstyle. She made some simply marvelous film noir movies with a guy named Alan Ladd. She was perfect as the femme fatale.
