silk and rice paper
Here's another bag made from silk kimono remnants purchased many years ago from the Asia Gallery when it was based in Kilbirnie. I've posed the bag next to a sweet little jug I found in a shop in Mayfield a few months ago.
And here are the two bags I've finished wrapped and ready to go. I sewed together four rice-paper pages from an old Chinese book (also bought years ago from the Asia Gallery) to make a sheet of wrapping paper and used a page from another book to make a card. I do like a well wrapped gift!
