Chic silk handbag with ginko screenprint
This handbag was made for my mom as a birthday present.
I am really proud of this one - it's stylish but chic. The triangular shaped bag opens up in a square bag with two inside pockets, one of them zippered.
Outside material is dupioni silk, grid quilted with golden embrodery thread.
I used a stiff but voluminous interlining and simple creme colored cotton as lining.
The ginko leafes are my first trial in screenprinting. To add some detail I quilted one of them with leaf-veins and shaddow-quilted the rest of them.
My mom likes this bag and wears it often.
Please note: The estimated time is sewing time only. It does NOT include pattern drafting, making the silkscreen or printing.
