I’ve been so busy creating that I forgot to blog! Last night I finished up a handbag I made specially for a friend, and it turned out lovely. It’s made of a satin Asian-style brocade in olive green. The brocade is covered with pink and gold flowers and bamboo. The handles are chopsticks that I sewed on by hand. To give them some added strength, I used a strong nylon upholstery thread. The whole thing closes up with a magnetic snap, which I sewed right onto the outer fabric, to keep it from pulling at the lining. Those magnets are strong! I hope she likes it. If you want to see more like it, or other bags I’ve made, check out my shop.
