usually have good fun making up names for my new designs. This time, I
was going to just make it a straight forward 'white rabbit bag',
but then it clicked that rabbits spend a lot of time in the meadows and
that 'black meadow' sounds like 'black widow'. I quite like black
humour, so there you go.
bought this printed cotton fabric at Remnant Kings in Glasgow a while
ago. I hardly ever start a new project straight after buying a fabric.
Usually, I need some time to get an idea of what I actually want to
make from it. I hate the thought that I could waste the fabric on
something I wouldn't like.
quilted this fabric with a thin layer of wadding to add some structure
and shape. The bag has a bright red cotton lining inside and a
hand-sewn beaded 16cm frame and 120cm chain.
