Image Statement: An evening bag, entirely constructed by hand, in tribute to all whom we have lost. The design on the felted black background suggests a Corona-like memorial wreath. The background and handle motif were created from a recycled and deconstructed sweater which was felted. Free-motion quilting with metallic thread creates texture and movement. Beaded yo-yos form the wreath.
