I'm toying with the idea of using altered art cloth to create handbags. Funky, fun and no two will ever look the same. I've realized that I love making cloth - dyeing it, screen printing it, painting it, discharging it and anything else that occurs in those 'hey what about doing this?' moments. Since I don't like making clothing I'm wondering if handbags would be an avenue to pursue. Stay tuned for more on this....but probably not until after the holidays.....it's so busy right now....and I have company staying over in a couple of weeks....and that means the house has to get cleaned....tum da dum dum.....
The piece above is dyed cloth overlaid with dyed silk organza and lots of stitching.
