Yesterday I put a new skill/craft together with an old one and made this Jane Austen book/tote/shopping/whatever bag!
I took a screen printing class back in November and I’ve been itching to really DO something with it—and this is the result! I screened the image onto a creamy cotton fabric which I then reversed appliqued to the front of the bag. It kinda reminds me of a portrait hanging on a wall—which has given me the idea to do a whole series of dead author portrait bags. I think I’ll have to tackle my beloved Dickens next. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out and it’s now available in my shop!
