Description

I made this bag out of a scrap of hemp canvas. It is embellished with pieces of hand dyed cotton lace.

I can’t wait for warm summer weather!

      Yes, it will work on all cotton or rayon. or if you use a cotton/poly blend, you will get more pastel colors. it doesn’t work on 100% polyester.
