These are the materials for my Nelly bag, inspired by one belonging to a character in Michelle de Kretser's novel, The Lost Dog.
I've drafted a pattern, bought lining fabric and interfacing, and I'm almost ready to sketch the daisies onto the black silk fabric. The threads are hand-dyed silk from Dinky Dyes: gold and green, and purple for the daisy centres. Yummy!
Keep your eyes peeled for updates as I get to work on this bag.
