This is the prototype for a series of bags I am making using some found tapestries. Usually I buy some dusty framed ones, but this one was stitched by my clever mom before she was married and was never framed! So here after half a century - it is having it's debut!
I made the bag from a sturdy cotton or light canvas. Inside it is lined with a South African 'Granny Print' from Berg River Textiles. I have included 3 generous pockets on the inside - and a little bit like my Glove Cushions - I am adding a stitched comment to each. This one is - Tapestree!
