My son-in-law Ilan built the very fitting stand for the bag - such good hands he has!
It is very hard to photograph the bag as a whole - only the details show you how versatile it is. Please zoom in! I had great pleasure to create this bag and I think it is worthy for any witch living in the woods!
First I had to make the ceramic faces and beads, this needs time, till it is bisque dry and then fired. After I had those ready it took about one day to prepare the crochet materials, to tear the fabric into strips, to paint the tyvek and cut it into rounds to get long bands and then roll it into large balls. It took then two full days to crochet and embellish the bag, most of the stuff is right incorporated with the crochet, I think there was no sewing on at all. The bag was constructed in three parts, front and back and a long piece of gusset together with the handles.
Of course it took many trips and excursions over a long period of time beforehand to collect all those things! :-) Size of the bag:
15" (38cm) x 12" (31cm) x 3" (8cm), the fringe is 14" (36cm) long and the handles are 20" (50cm) long.
