Red Bird Zipper Pouch, handmade bag, luxury travel accessories, bird illustration, silk tassel

Regular price £25.00
I made this one-off, handmade zipper pouch using my Red Bird fabric which is taken from my original watercolour. The front of the bag has the Red Bird design and the reverse is in a complementing plain grey cotton. The inside is lined with a white waterproof fabric, perfect for all those travel essentials. There is a flat bottomed gusset which makes it nice and roomy and a chunky black vintage style zip. The icing on the cake for this particular bag is the tassel which is I made using rough silk strips inside a real silk cocoon which has been dyed with a mix of red and purple inks and I also included a couple of flat beads glass which have crackled silver leaf inside them. All very rich and extravagant looking!

The Red Bird fabric is also available by the yard for your own fabric projects from
I have used the Kona Cotton fabric here and it really brings out the vibrant colours of the design, just as good as the original watercolour in fact!
