Although I wanted to be printing this week, I thought I should really get some bags finished first as they were promised a while ago. This one, I did yesterday. The fabric is a collage of various printed or dyed pieces plus silk paper, embroidery and yarn. The decorative strip on the flap is made from painted Tyvek which was stitched, couching down some threads, then heated. The beads are made from synthetic fabric or plastic using a heat gun and soldering iron. The cord is made by zigzagging over twisted together threads and yarns with the sewing machine.
