I did not buy handles yet for the black and red bag with the Bedouin embroidery. But I finished the other one - blue and green. It came out very nice with those little embellishments. I even don't remember where I found the pretty and colorful masks, I had them for ever. I think they are made from papier mache, and painted with acrylic. The beads are from a necklace I brought home from a market in the Provence while on vacation there some years ago. I did not like the necklace, I just wanted the beads. 

And the rings at the strap? Well those I saw just yesterday evening while strolling in a shopping mall. They had set up some fashion stands in the corridors and at one of them they sold plastic bracelets and rings. The bag was ready but for the strap and I was rolling ideas in my mind how to make it a bit more special - ha, those humble rings suited me just fine - they go perfectly with the masks, the beads and the button. 
The button is not for closure, just for prettiness, there is a magnetic snap under it!
The back side.
Size of the bag: 12" high, 12" wide at the bottom, 2,5" deep at the bottom. (ca. 30cm x 30cm x 7cm)

Liebe Yael,
ich finde die Tasche einfach toll.
Vor allen Dingen die drei "Masken" sind der Blickpunkt.
Einen lieben Sonntagsgruß schickt Dir

Dear Yael :) The bag is gorgeous! I like the shape, and the colours are so cheerful. The three mask beads really catch the eye.
Brilliant work!!

Hope you are having a nice Sunday :)

Hi YAel,
die Tasche ist einfach nur großartig - die Farben und Formen, all die kleinen Dinge, wie die Ringe und die Maskenanhänger, die Kontraste von Materialien und Farben und Formen.
Mir gefällt auch, dass sich die Form der 3 kleinen Masken in der Tasche wiederholt. Die Tasche wird sicher viele bewundernde und interessierte Blicke auf sich ziehen.
Hab noch einen schönen Sonntagabend
Wieder einmal komplett begeisterte Grüße

Liebe Yael,
da ist Dir mal wieder eine Tasche gelungen, wie ich sie bisher noch nirgends gesehen habe. Du verbindest Farben und Formen auf eine so besondere Weise und obwohl ich das ja schon länger weiß, bin ich immer wieder über deine Ergebnisse verblüfft.
Ein richtiger Eyecatcher.

Liebe Grüße von Birgit
