Silk purses

I found a small piece of blue-green handpainted silk, left over from an earlier project, which I used for an experiment in free-motion pintucking, making it even smaller. However, despite the small size of the final piece of fabric, I managed to make a croissant bag:

And two coin purses, with beaded zipper pulls (they look rather large compared with the croissant bag but they are about 12 cm across):

And a card:

I even have some other small pieces left over that might turn into something else eventually.

I just love the colour iof the silk and the pin tucks have created great texture. The sea horse looks quite at home there.
