Purple Wool Handbag with Embroidery

Artist statement: I made this handbag out of a purple wool fabric. It is underlined with interfacing and lined with a black rayon acetate fabric. The bag has machine quilting on the back and bottom. On the front there is a beautiful ribbon floral bouquet in shades of pink, blue, purple, and green with sage green satin ribbon stems, a lavender velvet cord bow and ecru vintage filet crochet. There is also a lined pocket on the back. The bag is roomy and will hold a lot of stuff. It measures 17" wide, 7" across the base and 12-1/2" tall to the beginning of the strap. The strap has an 18" drop. Would be great to carry your knitting or crochet projects in.
