Showcasing

I decided to make a series of linen handbags as a medium to showcase a range of different embellishing techniques in textile art. It’s taking longer than I had hoped due to numerous other things to do but so far I’ve tried embroidered felt designs; printing on fabric then embellishing with hand embroidery; needleturn appliqued wild flowers, using lace and doilies as embellishment; and today have just finished one with a flap decorated with ribbon embroidery, surface embroidery and machine embroidered leaves and a flower.

A Variety of Techniques

I really like the ribbon embroidered daisies but now not sure about mixing hand and machine embroidered decoration so will think about making another purely ribbon embroidered one later on.
