Mogi, "Mum made a tote bag with her eco printed fabric."
"She laid out assorted euc leaves and rose leaves.
What? Make a face? "
I put the leaves on a 100% silk fabric. Euc leaves for ears, eyes, stalk peels of rose for the head outlines. Two-fold wrapped and boiled in water with a little vinegar for an hour. Unbundled and sewed a tote bag.
Mogi, "Mum, it doesn't look like me. Christine S. said it looks like a panda rather than a cat !"
It doesn't matter, just for fun to have a pattern bag. I made the bag with lining (scraps of curtain samples) and straps (cotton dyed in my Portugal workshop last).
A finished look of two-side bag
A bag for carrying books, for grocery ..... anything as l like.
Another smaller bag also made with eco prints for my friend "IL". I gave her two years ago a bag with painting. I know it's washed out. Just wanted to give her a new one.
With the lining and inner pocket written - "I'm Original - tk"
Straps are waist strap from used coat
The fabric and leaves are soaked in alum. So prints are a bit yellowish.
Wish "IL" loves this bag
We're into summer. Mogi, it's so hot for holding you around but you do inspire me creation!
