Arty Bags and Clutches

Updated: Mar 23

It is fun to create art. It normally goes on the wall. I love it when art is given that added value factor by being incorporated into a useful item as well.

I am going to share a few bags and pouches created by people and incorporating the wave landscape patchwork technique into the bags and pouches.

Mabyn Clarke created this bright and sunny tote bag.

Zippered pouches are always practical and they can be pretty too.

As we see here in Brenda Mason Testu's pouch with an added collaged flower.

Dina didn't really want to make another landscape in sewing class, so after giving it some thought she decided to make quilted wave fabric with the strips that she had chosen and then construct a zippered pouch from the fabric.

Dana Amaya framed her African fabric piece in black and created an art bag
