Bag ladies



I have complete exhibition fatigue at the moment. I just can't work up the enthusiasm to get things framed. If they don't sell, they lurk about being heavy and awkward and getting in your way every time you go into the shoe cupboard. What? You don't keep your unclaimed art in the shoe cupboard? How bizarre! Don't your shoes complain?
I've had this idea in my mind for a while as a way of displaying stitched sketches. The organisers can either hang them on the wall by their handles or stand them on any availbe space as bags. The purchaser, should anyone be daft enough, can use them or display them or whatever. I would quite like to work on starting with the same brown paper base but appliqueing things to them to make them a bit more durable. Might do that next time.

Wow - I quite fancy that top one on a canvas bag actually - just imagine popping your library books in there! Great idea.

Sally, what about stitching directly on to or mounting on, the canvas bags that you bought for painting on? That way your works of art could be useful AND last a while.
