Silk bag

As requested, pictures of the finished silk bag.

the main bag is made from wool felt. The front of the bag is a mix of silk rods and sari silks with small beads and sequins sewn in between

The flower style tassels has been made by groups of threaded beads attached to the inside of cocoons decorated with gold thread.

a loop in the same material as the bag strap and a flower made from a silk rod make the bag fastener

Inside the bag showing the contrasting silk linning.

Just enough room inside for a lippy and a phone, what more does a girl need? lol
Julie, I hope you get as much enjoyment and pleasure from using this bag as I have making it for you.
Enjoy your day x
