In the spirit of finishing pieces, this bag which was part of a collection
from which this bag has been taken ,to be revamped into a purse style handbag. I dismantled the tote, cut the top to fit the frame, added stiff interfacing, a pocket in the lining and the final flourish… was to sew the bag onto the frame and add the handle.
have been working on. Adding some batting under the red border(the green central panel was already quilted) and quilted it. a red thread adds to the vividness.I really like the grid of stitches,the square shape and shadows.It reminds me of chocolate bar shapes …….
Am thinking I might add a purse frame to this..we’ll see.
Come to the makers market at Brixton Station Road on saturday 12th November
