Hedy's "Under the Sea" Bag
I wish I could take credit for designing this gorgeous bag but I did not make it. It was made by my incredibly talented BFF, Hedy. Hedy does not have a computer so I am entering it on her behalf to the eclectic Paperie "Do Something with a Bag" Challenge.
Hedy's bag started out as a piece of canvas drapery fabric with aqua, mauve and tan colors that evoke a seascape. She used rubberstamps of seaweeds to create the background. Next she used silk ribbons, embroidery thread and various fibers and incorporated beads and seashells from re-purposed jewelry along with a variety of embroidery stitches and techniques to create her undersea world. Metal charms of sand dollars, fish and sea shells were added as embellishments. There is also some whisps of fine netting n the design. The sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of fabric with black Stazon ink and attached with an embroidery stitch around the edge.
Thanks for stopping by...hope you leave a comment and I will pass them on to Hedy. Paulette
