Here's another sculptural bag I've made, I call her "Mosswoman."



She's a little smaller than the Greenwoman bag.



I think the bag needs some kind of closure, but I'm not sure what.  Here's a view of the opening:



The bag hangs on the body about the same as Greenwoman - the strap may be slightly shorter.

Thanks!  The face is carved from upholstery foam, with details built up from quilt batting, covered in fabric scraps.  Eyes are painted wooden half-spheres.

This bag is awesome!  I love it!  A toggle closure made from a stick would be neat.  Good work!

I love this. Any chance of a little explanation of how you do the face?

I wouldn't put another thing on the front of that bag.  It's perfect as it is.  Seems to me you need an inobtrusive closure - a magnetic snap on the lining or recessed zipper etc.

Thanks!

I think I might go with a snap, after all.   Smiley

Oh wow! I like her even more than the green woman! I agree that a magnet snap closure would probably work best
