I’m into embellishing hessian bags in a big way at the moment. Each bag has a number – we’re up to number 8 at the moment and counting! Anyone who visited the exhibition at Burton Library may find the bag in the centre slightly familiar. Until last Friday afternoon it was a rag rug, but overnight found itself turned into a handbag complete with lining and my very own version of a Chanel-style bag chain (recycled from a charity shop handbag and customised with a strip of lining fabric). I’m really enjoying using it.
