Here is another bag I have finished in the last few days. The photo doesn't do it justice, but I found it hard to photgraph. I followed the instructions Doreen gave in her tutorial for paper fabric a few weeks ago. I used the upper layer of a green patterned napkin and dripped dynaflo paints onto that. I rubbed it with treasure gold, then painted with acrylic wax to seal - I wanted to make sure that the gold didn't rub off onto clothing. These are such fun to make. I stitched a large snap fastener for the closure on this, and am not happy with the result - I shall go back to velcro I think, easier on my fingers.
We are having pleasant weather here, but there is a 25 knot wind blowing, which can be unpleasant, but better than the heat in South Australia, I am glad I am not there.
Queensland will have a mad day tomorrow with council elections for new amalgamated councils, courtesy of the State Government. There has been much confusion and will probably take at least another 12 months to have effective local government after this!
