Dragonfly Fanny Bag


Shine bright like a diamond!
Shine bright like a diamond!
 
And why not?

Unfortunately I wasn't able to catch those shy rays of Scottish sun to show you the real beauty of these sew-on Swarovski crystals and silver Washpapa. I didn't want to postpone the shoot for another week, so I decided to take photos usingour building's staircase as a set and a self-timer as a photographer. I even recorded a little video with the hope of showing all the sparkles in action.

As I already mentioned, the bag is made of a silver-coated version of Washpapa. I really like the wrinkled and creased effect that you get on the final product after turning it on the right side. 
Initially, I didn't have a plan to add any decorative motifs, but I think that the silver colour encouraged me to make it even more sparkly.

Happily, I still had a lot of crystals that I could use. I glued them first to the surface, in a shape of a dragonfly, and then stitched them on by hand with an extra-strong thread. I also poked little holes in Washpapa to make my sewing easier.

The bag has a lining, but of course I forgot to take a photo of the inside, so you have to take my word for it.

I took the opportunity to include my black collar-necklace in this photoshoot. I made it a while ago and never got around to taking pics of it. The collar is also decorated with Swarovski crystals, but the centre-piece is an actual silver brooch by Polish jewellery designer Motyle. I bought it when I was on summer holidays in GdaƄsk. I like nice souvenirs.

If you would like a bag like that, or a similar one, don't be shy and message me.
I am sure we can sort it out.
