Stamped bag



I finished this bag recently but have been holding on to it to use as a sample for a small workshop I am running in a local library. Basically it is stamped and then coloured with a fabric paint wash. I have backed and lined it with silk dupion which has such lovely jewel like colours.



The stitch is called Crown Stitch, I haven't used it before. There is quite a bit of free machining,some with a thicker thread used by placing the reel in a jam jar to the side of the machine. As you see I added a tassel.
