My "By-product" of eco prints - a tote bag.
After some experiments of rose and euc leavaes on cotton scraps, found my way to do something with them.
I sewed this as inner pocket for the cotton bag.

Reverse side of the bag
I bought the cotton fabric in the market. It's a good buy but if I just made a bag of plain without any pattern, it's not my way. I do it with my own personality rather then the mass production of common. So on the outside, another piece of my leaf print is sewed on.
Rose with iron mordant - the upper side is smooth and a bit green on cotton while iron mordant euc silver dollar are a bit brown.
The prints are botanic alchemy.
Now that the bag is with inside and outside pockets of my eco prints.
This cotton bag is big enough and strong to carry some books.
That's my way of making.
