Cocktail Sac

Today's handmade item is complete and I have learnt something new. 
Check out this amazing art deco inspired bag by Vivien Cheng in snake skin, I love it. 


Here is my bag in silk, with a gorgeous floral print cotton for the lining which I had been saving (or hoarding). Sewing a bag to a frame takes ages but is definitely worth it for the finish, this was hand stitched and then wrapped to mold the silk to the frame shape.
