Sonya Nimri, author of Beadalicious, posts on her blog show how she made this fabulous gold leaf bag. The design was inspired by a bag from Anthropologie. The striped fabric is actually a refashioned bag her mother brought back from a trip to Thailand. Gold leaf, as in leaves die cut out of gold leather. If you don’t have a die cutter and leaf-shaped die, you can always cut the shapes out by hand. Read more about her project on her blog.
