cloth bags #5 and #6

little cloth bags.
repurposed completely from pre-loved fabrics.
this one is made mostly from cottons. the straps made from a thai cotton.

the front is a vintage embroidered indian cotton that was once a waistecoat.

 the flap, and the back of the bag are a lovely dark green velvet.

 the front is lined with a heavier cotton.
the pretty vintage flower cloth lining the flap, is a thinner soft cotton.


strap length approx. 51 inches / 29 cms

. . . . . . . . .

this one has a purple linen front. the back and front flap are a dark green velvet.
with a little shell button.
 the lining and straps are made from a tie dyed cotton
picked up on a market in Burma many years ago.


strap length approx. 41½ inch / 106 cms
