Landscape Bag

I like the way the thin pigment traveled along the threads. I'll be using this technique more often.

All vertical lines done. I liked it but continued with completing the grid lines.

Beginning the pigment application

Landscape bag progressed in this way: a too faint monotype, monotype enhanced with pastel, scanned and printed on fabric, machine washed and dried, quilted to cotton batting, machine washed and dried again (to get that nice puckery texture). The total whiteness of what was going to be one side of the bag continued to bother me. So I gathered my courage and applied a light olive green liquid pigment to the quilting lines. I liked it much better. I sewed a simple slot outside pocket with button tab closing and innner tab loop with a swivel hook/clip.
