Fun, fanciful fibre-art bags

These bags are fantastic, fun and oh so frivolous -- and such a delight to make! They are approximately 6" wide and 8" high and are quilted with free-motion machine stitching and then embellished with beads. They are my own design which incorporates the handle into the construction of the bag for added security. Made to wear crossing your body, the deep flap is slightly weighted with beads to provide a measure of security without the need for other fastenings. Some have small pockets or loops for keys on the inside. Constructed of cotton and/or silk. The larger music bag has been hand-stamped and more highly embellished with additional stitching and layers of sheer fabrics. It has a leather strap and leather closure. THESE ITEMS ARE SOLD
