Description

This handbag was made for my mom as a birthday present.

I am really proud of this one – it’s stylish but chic. The triangular shaped bag opens up in a square bag with two inside pockets, one of them zippered.

Outside material is dupioni silk, grid quilted with golden embrodery thread.
I used a stiff but voluminous interlining and simple creme colored cotton as lining.

The ginko leafes are my first trial in screenprinting. To add some detail I quilted one of them with leaf-veins and shaddow-quilted the rest of them.

My mom likes this bag and wears it often.

Pattern is selfmade.

Thank you mom for being so patient. You were the last one to get a bag from me, though the most important.

    I loved this the moment I saw it! Ginkgo leaves are so graceful, and your color palate is great!

    Very classy. I like the ginko embroidery and the white/gold combination. Very well done!
