Well at long last I can show you one use of these little silhouettes I had drawn on shrink plastic a while back.This Pink Silhouette Clutch Bag is now available to purchase in my little corner of Folksy.
I housed the little flower clad girl in a leather and lace frame(which I particularly love making because they remind of a little holy medal case given to me as a child)
The leather framed silhouette sits on a clutch bag I made using linen,brocade and cotton. The lining is floral and has a contrasting interior check patterned pocket.And to greet the carrier when they open the bag I embroidered my dragonfly keyhole logo just above the magnetic snap.
And if you noticed the title of this post you will be waiting to hear what lesson I learnt.Well it would be not to work too late into the twilight hours.You see I made another bag similar to this one but with a lovely Japanese gingham cotton but lo and behold when I went to photograph it today I noticed a crease on the front and the crease is from the interfacing so it will not budge.I'm a very careful maker and it's really not like me to overlook something like that but I did work late into the night to finish it and I will not be making that mistake again.
So to replace the missing bag I added this Leather Daisy brooch to Folksy today also.This brooch features leather,dupion,organza,vintage fabric and embroidery.Hope you like it.
Take care until next time,
