From Vicki Page in WI a very wonderful Japanese inspired purse!! I literally gasped when I pulled Vicki's bag from the box! If you click on the photos you will be able to see more of the beautiful patchwork, decorative machine stitching in gold thread and hand embroidery Vicki did with beads. Vicki has also added a tag to her bag that explains that the butterfly she sewed on (green stone, next to the image of the woman) represents the human soul, the Koi fish she added to the other side of the bag represents fearlessness, and the Japanese writing on the bottom of the bag translates to 'artist'. There are even gold bells on this bag!
What more can I say? I think by looking at the photos, which are never quite as good as the 'real' thing, you will still agree that this is an exceptional piece of fabric art! Take a look at the back of the bag:
