This bag is an heirloom! My friend Sue gave me a dress that her 80 year old mom wore as a young woman! Along with another beautiful silk dress, this velvet dream was hanging in my friends closet, and she gave it to me to "recycle" into handbags to be used, enjoyed, treasured and loved. We took this velvet dress and made this little pouch bag, and then did a double row of hand beaded fringe with a picot beading along the top. It turned out to be absolutely gorgeous...and certainly an heirloom to be handed down the Hodges/Stone lineage. My friend was touched and thrilled to see, feel and own the bag!
