Getting back on the "programme" - I used my new set of water colours to paint these little guys below.

This started out as a collage of embroidery and fabric remnants, which I got from my mom's tailor (a whole huge bag full!) It's been left in a box for the past 12 years. After such a long hiatus from making and painting (that even my mom's tailor has retired!) I decided to take it out and make a bag out of it. I made it some months ago and it's completely hand sewn just like the baby quilt. My first bag from my first hand sewn art piece is also my first anything since I started going back down the creative path again.
If you look closely, you can see her camisole under her lace top :)
I used my late grandmother's old batik for the lining. The colours have faded but it still looks beautiful.
