    thank you, kaitui_kiwi _ thanks a lot, Miss-G :) For centering of text I used Excel calculations. First I measured the width of a single character (WC:), then calculated using Excel function the number of characters in each row (NC:), then multiplied WC by NC (WR); after this was the deduction of WR from the width of a bag, and dividing of this value into 2. And so comes the value we measure out from left!

    Black and silver is a nice contrast. I’m impressed how well you centered the text.

    A very clever and simple embellishment, I wish my machine made letters :) Maybe one day, I’ll add it to my wish list ;)
