Picking out fabric for a new duffle bag

I have a customer who has ask me to make a large duffel bag for her, and she picked out this Moda fabric.

So I picked out this Moda fabric from the same collection to use as an accent.

Cute, right?  But, when you put them side by side, they didn’t look so good.  So I tried some other combinations.

First I tried a couple of blues.

I didn’t really like either of these choices either.

Then I tried green.  Much better.

I thought I might as well see what gold fabrics would look like.

Here’s what I decided to go with , in about the same proportions as in the picture.  What do you think?  Sometimes others see something that has gone over my head.

  1. Love your choices!! They look perfect!

    • Thanks! Sometimes I know for sure, and other times it just doesn’t click. Occasionally, I will finish a project and then like it when all along the way, I wasn’t sure. What about you? How do you decide what fabrics to use together?
