RUBY RED ROSE velvet lined BAG mixed media

I just loved making this bag. As you can see, it features a raunchy ruffled red rose, handmade stalk and leaf embellishments. It closes with a handmade flower button and is lined with matching ruby red velvet.
The body and handle of the bag has been crocheted in a soft coloured green cotton yarn. The leaf motifs were created using wood, moulding paste, paint and a protective gloss lacquer. The ruffled rose and flower button are crocheted in red cotton yarn and embellishments include a vintage button from my collection, ruby red crystal beads and gold metallic thread. The handstitched lining was made using a yummy piece of red velvet I've been treasuring for years.

Bag measures 7.5 x 7.5 ins approx. (19 x 19 cms)

Handle 31 ins approx (80 cms)  See my Etsy shop.


  1. It is a beautiful bag indeed! I continue to admire those that can crochet .. I think i'd like to learn how to make these as well :)


  2. Thank you Sigmosaics. I was taught to crochet by my grandmother when I was a child. It's the kind of technique that you'd probably find easier to learn if you are shown. Maybe you could find a class in your area....
