Flower Appliqued Bags

I am working on some flower appliqued bags made from cotton, linen, and silk; so I thought I’d post some works-in-progress photos.

The first set of photos shows the makings of some new reversible cross-body bags.  This time the bags will have decorated flaps, and these have been very fun to create!!

The next set of photos features one finished bag flap (first photo, just one side of the flap) and the makings of new linen clutches/wristlet bags with silk flowers.  The last photo is of a completed clutch.  I’m pleased with how these are turning out!

These last two photos feature a business card holder that I made.  I had made one a few weeks ago, but I wanted to insert the elastic in a different way; so I made a new one.  It also gave me an excuse to play around with crazy-quilting with silk and embroidery.  😀
