Denim Bag

I’m creating a line of spirit bags. This is one of them. It is made up of raw edge patchwork recycled denim with a butterfly and text transfer. The text was iron-on transferred¬†onto cotton fabric and machine stitched in place. The mottled look of it was a happy accident due to the heat of the iron. The butterfly was directly ironed onto the bag. Since the bag has a kinda funky flavor to it, I photoshopped the background of the pic with some splashes of color.

Clutch Bags

Here are two patchwork collage clutch bags. These started out as art quilts. I love quilting fabric collage. The texture it renders is simply delicious. I love the way the purples play with and enhance the deep reds. Both of the bags have a soft structure and are just so unique.
