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!
