Recently my sister sent me a bulk parcel . Among other things was this lovely silk bag. Its always a pleasure to recive gifts and more so if its something so adorable. The bag is made of a double weave silk which looks peacock blue from one angle and maroon from the other. Its decorated with lovely crazy quilt work. I have put my favourite pieces below.

She knows I loved hand embroidered work so this bag is full of gold and silver embroidery,  satin thread embroidery, beads, sequins, pearls—just all of it.

I love the metallic silver embroidery here.


The gold metallic thread looks amazing with the golden sequins. Also I couldnt have imagined pearls to look good on a turquoise silk like it does here.
