a bag for doreen´s twin sister: turquoise feathers

doreen ordered a bag for her sister, currently living on the east coast of the USA. i was free to choose everything, no specifications from doreen´s site at all: color, material, size, complexity of the design… this is how i work best !

chose the left combination of material & colors:

dots, stripes & menthe

finally i found a way to get rid of my old shirts (those with holes and/or dirt stains, those that got too short, those that became twisted along the seams after washing once (!!) etc…)

i use them for new shirt making, anyway i´m very much into color blocking.

here i joined 2 old shirts (one with nautical stripes & one with polka dots) with a piece of new menthe colored jersey (96% viscose & 4% spandex).

besides dots and stripes…i also fell in love with contrasting, hidden stitching

cute little purse with wings

used up my last bit of this uncredible soft, camel tone leather. still had some bits of cream leather from my craters-of-the-moon bag, too small to create a bag on its own but too beautiful to be thrown away. so i cut the cream parts in shape and created little feathers, sewed them to give a wing shape.

plus: used neon yellow garn (100% polyester) still a left over from my trip to thailand in 2010.
