"Semillas"- Lily Seeds Handbags



"Semillas"
means seeds in spanish. When you grow your own veggies, you deal with seeds almost daily. Buying them, seeding, taking care of the seedlingss, gathering seeds for the next year, etc. Besides the veggie patch, we also have a rather wild flower garden. Many of those flowers have now their seed pods hanging... waiting to fall and start the cycle again.
Well, they are the inspiration for this next line of bags, "Semillas - Seeds", on which I have been working for a while. Silently working out patterns and sizes. Color charts and felt designs.

I have a few already done and ready to be uploaded to my shop. And here to kick start this new line is the first one. Drum roll please!

"Natural":



natural seedpodbag



This bag was handfelted using Russian, camel hair coloured, coarse wool for the base. Natural merino wool and merino handspun yarn were used for the seed/leaf designs on each of the 4 sides. All different. It is lined with off-white cotton canvas fabric and reinforced on each edge for extra sturdiness.
I fit my cell phone, wallet, reading glasses, keys, coin pouch and little moleskine in it... with space to spare. You can see on the botton right corner pic how it looks when you hang it on your shoulder. That ussually gives a better idea of an item's size than plain measurements.

The "Semillas- Lily Seed handbag. Natural" is listed in my shop now where you can see more pictures and read more info. It is customizable, of course. You just have to contact me: www.florcita.eu

More colors and surface design in the days to come!
