Brand New Bag

I have been playing around with a new concept in small bags,
and I'm pleased with the results you see above.
The body is made from layers of needle-felted wool and my own 
hand-dyed silks,
The purse is also hand embroidered and beaded.
It has a front and back section, and measures roughly 
6" wide x 7-1/2" tall.
The strap is long: 6" x 72", and is actually 
a hand-dyed silk charmeuse skinny scarf,
so it is buttery soft around the neck.
The scarf can, of course, be removed and worn alone as a 
colorful accessory.

Here is the back:

I will be offering these for sale in the boutique at

Peace to you and yours!

great idea -to make (delightful) and promote and sell them!! As the NPR car guys used to say and I've borrowed it a bunch-"shameless commerce"; Will have a look at the sales site!

This is just gorgeous and how clever you are - a purse and a scarf in one.

Absolutely gorgeous. Such a good idea to be able to use the scarf as a separate accessory.
