Glass Blower's/ Lampwork Beader's Bag
I have received requests to make novelty handbags that reflect peoples professions and hobbies. This is one of those bags! It is my artist's interpretation of a lampwork bead maker or glass blower's bag.
The exterior is black poplin accented by a bright multi-colored polka dot fabric on both the front and rear panels. The two exterior pockets are further accented by colored beads that have been hand sewn into place. The pockets are lined with the polka dot fabric.
The closure for this bag is a shiny silver-toned button with a black bead in the center that slips through a black poplin loop.
The handles are 16" long, making this a wristlet. It will not fit over an average woman's shoulder.
The interior of this bag is flaming! It is a cotton print with "tongues" of orange flames on a black background.
There are two interior pockets which are accented by black piping.
This bag is a lot of fun. Nothing too serious about this one! Let your handbag make a statement about who you are!
