Here are a couple of bags that I was commissioned to make for the gallery where I’m selling my designs. I was asked for something green, with a star theme, so made these two bags.
The first one is created from a Ted Baker scarf and a man’s jumper, plus an old bed sheet. I made a sort of star-like corsage with the felted fringing from the end of the scarf, and finished it off with a big wooden button.
This is a bag for people who have a lot to carry – students, mums or business people perhaps. It comfortably holds books, files and papers, or even a large craft project. The handle is lined so that it will take quite a lot of weight without stretching.
Apologies for the appalling pictures, I’m in rehearsals full time at the moment so I’m never home in daylight!
