This is another bag created for my friend is crocheted and machine felted with black wool yarn and then lined with a lovely green/black silk dress that was her mom's. I hand beaded a spiral rope handle and then did my first try at the "triangle fringe bead" on the flap. It really turned out nicely and my friend loved it. I'm wondering if she gave it to her mom, niece, sister, daughter...or kept it for herself! What a great idea to re-create heirlooms from vintage dresses hanging in the closet never to be seen again!
