Bag commission for my Aunt...

I was commisoned to make a bag for my Aunt; for my cousins wedding coming up in october.  It is a hand painted pure silk bag, with a pure silk lining.

I have made a felt lining inside, so that the bag keeps its shape.  To finish I have added a button, covered in the same silk as the bag, and a machined loop. 

A wrist strap, made from tweed and velvet has been added, so that my aunt has the option of using that too; whilst at the wedding.

I have decorated the bag with subtle gathers on the flap; five in total.

I am rather pleased with the result...........here are some images of the piece!
