Freeform bag

Yet again I’ve made a bag!  This time the inspiration was discovering that the WAFTA feature display at the Perth Quilt and Craft Fair from 22-26 May this year didn’t have a “traditional” freeform bag in it.  Conscious that followers of Prudence Mapstone (who will be at the Fair) would like to see a bag, I designed and made one.  It took longer than I thought it would.  Of course.  It always does. Anyway, I decided not to do the stereotypical “pouch” or “dilly bag” style.  I chose to back it with Annie’s Soft and Stable and to line it with a champagne coloured dupion silk.  It’s made of wool, alpaca, mohair and cotton fibres.  I’m quite pleased with it actually.
