This is a draft of a new bag, my final commission for a dear friend. She likes the design and direction so I’m gearing it up.


It will be a green wool bag with the appliqued motifs (leaves and the pomegranate) in a variety of fabrics but this time I’ll be painting the details on the mandrake herself for a finer, more delicate, effect. Her crown will be dark purple velvet ribbon blossoms and they’re really the inspiration once I started studying real mandrake plants.


She’s really growing on me and I think she’ll become more than just a one off. She wants to come alive as many things, not always a mandrake. And you know a lady such as this gets what she wants.
