Black linen bag with embroidered bird
This whimsical bag was made with black linen and is lined with a gorgeous purple/blue hand dyed watercolour print. It has a zipper closure and over-the-shoulder straps. The colourful bird has been made with fabric collage, as well as hand and machine embroidery.
It is a lightweight bag perfect to take along shopping or to use as a summer handbag .17”x11”
Fabric collage is one of my favourite methods of embellishment. It uses fabric scraps and a variety of embroidery stitches.
This makes a thoughtful gift for someone, especially a bird lover. Retail is moving away from using plastic bags and it is easy to carry a lightweight bag with you, wherever you go.
