I’m fond of sewing and also of working with glass beads, expecially the small ones. Here I mixed the two things together!
I made this bag for myself some years ago using a square of denim out of old throusers (I cut it keeping the original sewing border in the middle), I folded it in about three parts to have a long flap in the front and sewn it on the borders using a navy cotton ribbon to cover the edges and to refine all the border of the bag.
Then I stitched all the front fringe using beads of many many colors together with black long beads!!! It took a LONG time!
I realized a butterfly with beads and copper wire (the shape is taken from the manga “Paradise Kiss” by Ai Yazawa. Did anybody read it???) and stitched it to the front flap.
Finally I used a big navy/beige cord as handle: it is kept in place by two ribbon rings so it can be shortened (as handle) or lengthened (as shoulder strap) only doing a knot of the vord itself.
