Not too bad to make a bag 何不做一個袋子

 I'm not good in painting but just wanted to make use of the fabric my colleague gave me.
 Ever since I showed my colleague L. the making of nuno felt and eco print with leaves, she finds amazing and wants to experiment more.  She bought a piece of chiffon but found it could not be felted with wool or for eco printing with leaves.  I tested it.  Too bad it's a synthetic fibre chiffon, not silk chiffon and pretty steep!    I said if it's pure silk, when burnt with a lighter, it smells like burning hair and ashes are powder like. She found it useless and gave me for whatever I do. 
I do not want to waste it.  Do my graffito to paint it with acrylic.

 After painting, I sewed a bag for L.
 A bag for grocery shopping or for picking her own grown organic produces.....
These are euc leaves I picked at the station for L. to do the eco print.  
Mogi said, "next time you buy silk fabrics, ask the shop keeper to burn it for a proof...."
L, hope you like this bag - it costs you hundreds $$ for the lesson!!

  1. It's charming - I'm sure she will love it!

  2. it turned out a nice bag; Mogi approces and gives good if impossible advice! How nice that L has now joined the world of eco addicts!

  3. So good a friend of you to make something useful out of fabric that your friend could not use for another idea. She will be surprised and love what you did for her.
