Last week I finished designing a new clutch purse using fabric beads in unusual ways – for handgrips and purse feet. You can see the finished design it here.
Now the same clutch purse design takes on a whole new persona. Instead of using plain fabric, this one is being designed using using one of my digital art images printed onto textured fabric paper. Before printing, I prepared the fabric paper with Inkaid, and you can see more about my experiments using Inkaid here.
I used the lovely Last of the Summer Roses art design and it printed beautifully with lovely rich color…
and beautiful texture …
I’m finishing the edges with handmade cording and satin stitch, the same technique I use to finish my art bags. A touch of burgundy red to flush out the reddish undertones used in the image.
