Quilty Pleasure

I have recently embraced the gentle art of quilting, but there are only so many quilts that one can use at once, so I decided to channel my new-found love into something else. This is my first attempt at a patchwork bag and I'm rather pleased with it. The bag is made of pieced together swatches of kimono fabrics that I have collected over my time in Japan. It has canvas handles and is fully lined in a fresh green cotton, with an inside pocket for smaller items. It is held closed using a loop with a string of heavy beads threaded through it, and the beads act as a rather pretty feature. You can check it out at my Etsy store.
