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.
