This bag is fully lined, piped seams, zipper on top and a sturdy webbing handle, from webbing from the always fantastic Frankles trimmings in the east end of London.
I made the beaded tassle to add interest.
This is from the terrace of a resturant at the top of a mountain, it was simply the best pizza and the most stunning view ever
Verscio, a very pretty little village, with its own mime theatre
For this swap I sent painted and printed t-shirts, embroidered hats, purses, bags and lots of appliqued items. And of course tons of jewellery. I love the imagry of skulls and the whole iconography of dios de los muertos

here are some of the random bags that I have made for swaps for other people in the last few months.
This bag was made from vintage fabric and has a winged heart on the front.
I went a little mad on the embellishment of this one, the dragon fly is hand embroidered and beaded onto an iridescent fabric, to try and capture the beauty of the wings of dragonflies,
The back of the bag has two smaller dragonflies, also embroidered and beaded in the same way, the fabric is also vintage.
