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.
If you make such a project make sure you have a few days for it!
