Experimental bag with dyed fabric and silk collage


Front of bag

2018 has been my summer of using the materials I’ve been making and this bag is a fusion of some of the hand dyed fabric and silk papers.  I call it experimental because I want to see how the silk paper holds up on the bag before I offer this type of work for sale.  So far it’s holding up well for light everyday use.  The bag is  6.5″ x 11″ and the handle is some of the ribbon I’ve been dying.  This was the first time I used gunmetal grey in the dyes. Many of the pieces came out with an interesting camouflage look.

  1. This is exquisite Theresa!! Omgosh I am really thinking I need to find way to get to Va. for a class or two by you! Or at least to play art with you! lol
    Your artwork is like no other and that’s why it is ever so appealing to me! I am in awe!
