Pretty Silk Clutch Purse.
Inspired by Apple Blossom in the Spring. I've used my own Hand-dyed and Devore fabric for my 'Textured Applique'. Each petal is individually created and applied using hand embroidery stitches.
I have used a medium weight Shandong Silk in Ivory for the outer part of the bag.
Inside is lined with an ivory tone on tone rose textured fabric and has a mirror pocket.
The beautiful crocheted table cloth was made by my Grandmother and was used when Sunday tea was served. It's still as perfect as the day it was made and holds many memories for me. Homemade bread and cakes sitting on exquisite china plates and tea in china cups. Everything was 'Just so!'
A smaller bag in Shell Pink Crushed Thai Silk would be a perfect gift for a bridesmaid.
Lined in White textured rose fabric and again with a pocket.
I love working with silk. This gorgeous Silk Satin Scarf perfectly complements this elegant Silk Clutch Bag.
The scarf has been through various dying processes layering colour on colour to create hidden memories that shimmer in the light.
The bag has also been carefully hand dyed. It has a subtle row of hand beading along the flap. Inside is lined with the same fabric. it has a magnetic clasp.
Team this with a simple Ivory dress and some statement jewellery to complete the look.
These are totally one of designer pieces and will not be repeated.
I'm searching through my fabric to create even more bags and purses. each one will be an individual art/statement piece.
