I've been quite divided between the maker and the artist during this pandemic period of COVID. This period has gotten me to embrace my artistic voice and put it more in my functional and fine art pieces. This messenger bag series begins my connection of the two: the art and the function.
Bird women have become my vision as I've been working as an artist over the past three years. I see them as messengers to communicate their concern for how we are taking care of the environment. Humans are the only species that don't take care of their environment since we have not been living with, but more like against the elements. My most recent hoop pieces have been adding the figure to spaces with birds and plants in various environments. After much delight of customer approval, I've added them to my functional collections of pillows and messenger bags.
A truly one of a kind hand bag. This bag features one of my bird women, my Missy Flamingo, that is a freehand hand machine stitched! Not programmed! It also features up cycled tweed and velvet fabrics that I have collected over the years. I created my bird women to be protectors of our hearts, our environment and our womanhood.
This eco friendly bag is preyed with up cycled decor and velvet fabrics. The velvet is actually from stage curtains! The bag is lined with stiff interfacing to keep their shape and complementary organic cotton fabric is used for the interior lining. The freehand machine stitched bird woman is appliqué and reinforced sewn onto the front flap. Inside has two accessory pockets right underneath the front flap that is also created with the same velvet fabric that is on the front of the bag , trimmed in bias tape, and are easy access to the phone, keys, and or wallet. Inside has an open pocket and a zipper pocket. It had an adjustable strap that can hook on and off, with stainless steel hardware. The bag had a magnetic metal closure.
This bag measures 9" H X 9”W X 2.5” D,
Strap measures 42" long and 1" wide.
Spot clean, hang dry, and steam iron.
Every bag is 100% hand-made with care. And a one of a kind! Proudly Made in Baltimore, MD, in a pet and smoke-free studio, by one woman, one at a time, by one woman, one at a time!
