I've been busy lately making purses . I'm using fabrics and embellishments that I've collected on my travels over the years. I will have some purses, as well as hand-dyed fabrics and Guatemalan textiles, for sale at the Clark County Quilters' Annual Quilt Show next week. I'm working on adding a page to the blog with purses for sale. Here are just a couple of the bags that are available.
This is a drawstring tote, approximately 13"w x 14"h x 5"d. The purse is made from my handdyes (purse bottom, lining, top gathered panel, straps and drawstring ties) and hand-woven fabric from Guatemala (purse body and pocket trim). The embroidered parrot panel on the outside pocket is by the Cuna Indians of San Blas, Panama. The purse is fully lined, and has an inside pocket. It's a one-of-a-kind bag by Bonnie. PDS01 - $75 + tax where applicable and shipping.
This mola tote is approximately 13"w x 13"h x 3"d. The mola was made by Cuna Indians from Panama and forms a pocket on the outside of the purse. The beaded loop and handwoven, beaded strap accents are from Aguas Calientes, Peru. The outside pocket closes with a vintage button. The exterior purse fabric is handwoven in Guatemala. One-of-a-kind bag by Bonnie. PMT01 - $70 + tax where applicable and shipping.
The travel bag below is made of Indonesian ikat. It measures approximately 9"w x 12"h. I made the reverse applique spiral panel on the front pocket. The adjustable hand-woven strap is from Peru. The purse is fully lined, has a zipper closure and a front pocket that secures with a vintage button and loop. One-of-a-kind bag by Bonnie. PTP01 - $45 + tax where applicable and shipping.
Email me if you are interested in any of these purses. I'll have more on the new Purses for Sale page in the next few days.
