Make it a bag 植物印染布袋

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!

  1. Mogi inspires you to make beautiful creations, I love his little face on the bag!! Its lovely and so handy!

  2. So beautiful. Your Mogi is just gorgeous, and so are your bags. I have four beautiful felines of my own, all rescued from the street. I will be signing on to follow, Terrie. Please feel free to stop by my blog for a visit.

    Best wishes, M-T

  3. Love the bag project and of course, Mogi's part in it all!

  4. What a great idea, using parts of leaves to create an animal portrait!

  5. Lovely bags! And I love the "I'm original TK" labels!
