This is a one-off, larger size handbag in a sumptuous oriental print of red paeonies and green leaves on black. Both the flowers and the leaves are picked out in metallic gold. I've kept the lining, handles and contrast to a simple marbled black cotton and have added a handcrafted, three-dimensional, wool felt paeony with a beaded centre as the final flourish.
Like all my bags it's very lightweight. Inside you have a zipped pocket, two slip pockets and a pen pocket. There's also a handy key hook on contrasting ribbon so your keys will always be easy to find.
Dimensions (approximate) – 35 cm wide, 27 cm high (not including handles), 7.5 cm deep at base.
Please note the 'inside' photo came up a little pale due to the flash, the inside is the same black as the outer contrast and handles.
I've been really good this year and only bought fabric I actually needed, until I saw this one... I love rich colours, oriental style prints and paeonies so I succumbed.
Trying to come up with a finishing touch was tricky, I had nothing of the right size/colour in my button or bead boxes. So I had a dig about in the scrap box and found some oddments of wool felt that toned beautifully, thought back to my Grannie making silk flowers for hats when I was a little girl, and had a go. I'm incredibly pleased with the result and foresee more felt flower decorations in the future.
