Some friends have expressed sooooooo much interest in some of my bags I thought I would turn this interest into gifts for Christmas and now after these I think I am almost bagged out for the moment.......that will probably only last for a day though knowing me!!! I love making these crazy patchwork pieces especially choosing the fabrics which I know will work.
This rose on the front is one I made from some from some dyed cotton and am pleased the way it turned out.
The rose on this one is made from felted and quilted dyed mohair on top of some gathered up organza.The back of purse is from dyed velvet, a vintage tye, brocade and sari silk.
These tote bags are made mainly from cotton fabrics with a little bit of tapestry, lace, ric rac, lace and silk puffs.
Last, but not least, is a card I have made from Bali batik scraps, a little cotton and lace dyed by me and the centre is made from felted silk, embellished with a piece of beaded braid.
