A Walk on the Wild Side.
This tapestry came from Japan. My mother was given several but what happened to them I don't know. I was given this lovely tapestry and I wanted to use it in a purse but for a while I had to "thin on it". Then I started pulling out fabrics and when I put it next to the leopard weave, I said "Eureka"........ Sometimes the least amount of thinking allows the inner mind to operate and this time I was totally satisfied with the combination.
I lined it with black Satin and it has a leopard pocket. I have a lot of sub structure that cannot be seen but it allows the purse to have a stand alone feeling and it won't collapse when it is left by itself. Handy to rummage in the inside!
