Jeans bag progress report

The latest work I've done on my jeans bag: a trail of Indian glass beads on the back pocket, and some organza ribbon "seaweed" tacked onto the front. I've also added the seahorse and fish brads I bought at the craft fair and have sorted some shells and beads ready to encrust the ocean floor.
Among the glass beads I have set out to use is a large turquoise-coloured oval bead with raised orange spots. This morning, Wonder Boy picked it up and said, "Look, mum, a sea slug". So I'll be making an appearance as an avatar on my own embroidery!
