Here is an opportunity to purchase a unique piece of textile art on a bag that could have multiple uses! This exclusive zipped clutch bag or pouch features an individually created panel of appliqued and embroidered art work depicting the Northern Lights.

Dimensions (approx): 22cm x 16cm x 3cm (8.5 x 6.5 x 1.25 inches)

The bag is made from a soft, felt-like black fabric which has been backed with fusible interfacing. The art work on the front of the panel is made from appliqued offcuts of batik cotton fabrics, black cotton fabric and peacock blue silk, and is embellished with machine stitching in variegated rayon threads. This is my own design based on photographs of the Northern Lights taken during a trip to Norway.

The bag is lined in peacock blue rayon and silk fabrics and has a 10cm wide slip-in pocket and several narrow slots which could be used for pens or, if you wanted to use this as a craft pouch, for crochet hooks and scissors.
I would like to think that this bag is versatile enough for you to use it in whatever way you want: either as a "statement" addition to your going-out look, or as a keepsake pouch for storing craft items such as sewing or crocheting equipment. What would you use it for?

Every item in my shop is individually designed and made by me, so you can be sure that a BarMade Bag is a unique creation. If you want to see other items that I have available, please click here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/barmadebags

Barbara made me a beautifully crafted phone pouch, to a pattern we worked out together, as I had very specific requirements. She was generous with her time and expertise in helping me come to a final design, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. The item arrived quickly. I will most definitely be asking for more bespoke pieces in the future!

‘Austin’s Bag’ is our second order from Barbara and words don’t come near to say how delighted we are. The fabrics used, the standard of sewing and the end result are nothing less than high-end! Barbara you are so talented; thank you. Austin with love joining his cousins Emily and Julia, whose bags were our initial order, on library visits. All three book bags are unbelievably high standard. The grandchildren will enjoy using them. Xx

A beautiful bag! It arrived way ahead of the predicted delivery window. I love all the colourful detail outside and inside, and the zips and buckle seem strong. Hope to have this as my faithful bag for a very long time. Thank you barmadebags, for such a unique bag that suits me perfectly.
