I guess I'm still thinking of The Charleston, super cool cigarette holders, and flappers because I kept this Art Deco theme going when I created the above ATC for this month's Artful Bag Challenge. My swap partner is Wendy from Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland. I just sent her the card; I hope she likes it! Be sure to click over to Frosted Petunias to check out the other "bag" ATCs!
Speaking of bags, I have been experimenting with my own design for a small gadget/personal items/make up bag. I'm pretty happy with the size and shape. I've transfered images (using gel medium) to a few of the bags and then embellished the image with beads, sequins, or just embroidery...like this one:
Here's a closer view:
Here is the the back of the bag:
For the record, I've never embroidered before. What do you think? One last word on bags...look at the awesome fabric I bought over the weekend! It's Echino and too expensive to mess up! My plan is to make a bag for my daughter. Wish me luck!
