These bags have been made in the style of a Bargello quilt, using strips of colour that are sewn together then recut and the colours rearranged to give a fluid, shaded effect. There is one in shades of blue with hints of lemon, pink and jade; the other is in subtle stormy shades of lilac, grey, blue and dusky pink.
Both made from 100% recycled fabrics, the blue one has a plain cornflower blue lining and the lilac one a white and lilac floral lining.
16" x 16", the lilac has a shoulder strap while the blue has a shorter length strap.

This bag is from a small offcut of beautiful woven chenille fabric in shades of cream, lined with a sumptuous black and bronze satin. It is fastened with a pretty crochet loop and fancy gold coloured button and finished with a detachable, crochet flower. Inside are two good sized pockets to stop your smaller items from disappearing to the bottom of the bag.
At 28cm x 28cm (11" x 11") it is not a shopper, more a large hand/shoulder bag. The strap is a generous 132cm (52") long so can go either over your shoulder or across the body.
