Denim Skirt Handbag Hubs Sacked!
News Flash: Future Denim Purse Hubs Disallowed
After putting together the third denim skirt handbag hub and posting it I received notice that it was considered duplicate content and therefore unpublished by the powers that be. Even after I reworked the content the notice came again.
Though I tried, I can’t keep my promise to post the next hub in that series. This also means that the hubs on this topic which I had planned for the future are not going to be available on HubPages. If I start a blog on my work with these purses I'll post the link in these hubs.
Thinking Through the Purse Project Hubs: Two Sides to the Issue
Initially, I was naturally irritated because I began posting these denim skirt handbag projects so others could see that they can be classy, unique accessories to own and use, as well as to give as gifts.
I decided not to waste time whining, though. All things considered, I decided to just work it out. It’s frustrating, but I do sort of understand after thinking about it.
Some people would look at a series like this and wonder how much can be written about such a topic. On the other hand, those interested in making these bags would be keenly interested in the differences of each one.
Sure, they are all handbags. They open and close, have handles, pockets, linings, shells, and embellishments. They hold our stuff, and sometimes everyone else's. They are all made from the same basic supplies and used in the same way.
Still, they are each one unique in their size and in nearly all of their other details. There are techniques that could be discussed which would make each new bag an adventure. That’s what makes each one worthy of an individual hub and I can’t give on that point.
I do understand, though, that the words used in each hub are the same. While I would like to continue the series and highlight different aspects of features that make each one unique, the machine that runs HubPages only sees the same words over and over again.
There are dozens of ways to make and decorate handles, for instance, and I was looking forward to showing off some of the methods I’ve worked on, as well as experimenting with new projects and sharing them here.
I could do a couple of handle hubs, but each bag has other noteworthy features that make them distinctive from the others so the whole business of not being able to do my series of denim skirt handbag hubs is something I’ll have to think more about.
There are other options and I'll have to take the time to decide which one will be my best choice. As well, other topics for writing on HubPages are waiting in the wings so it's best to keep moving and not let getting sacked sidetrack me!
Changing the Plan for Denim Skirt Handbag Hubs
In the meantime, this hub is going to highlight a few bags I've already created. You can see a bit of how they went together in the photos.
As well, questions can be posted in the comments section below and I hope others with experience making bags will add their input to the dialogue.
The Sacked Project
These photos are of the third handbag I made for the Gamecock fan to choose from. She liked this one, but it was too small for her needs.
This little bag is perfect for the girl who likes to keep up with just her bare necessities, while the first two bags were sized more for those who like to take all their stuff and such everywhere they go.
The captions have some information on how they were made.
This bag is a great sack style for casual living. Finding a denim skirt with that fun embroidery across the bottom was like finding the prize of the day. I knew at first sight that this bag would be for my baby sister.
A Denim Bag--No Skirt Involved
I wanted to just use up the remaining Gamecock team fabric so I decided to make a handbag with some denim fabric I also had on hand. A denim skirt is not necessary, it's just unique.
Making a bag shell from scratch gave me a chance to experiment with a braided handle and some applique work. This bag was made with heavy duty interfacing so it would stand up on its own. I wound up with a nice bag that has extra pockets inside and out.
