Idea file: Gold leaf wristlet purse

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.

    Hi Anne! Thanks so much for posting my project! I really appreciate it. Yes, the gold leaves can be cut by hand very easily, no need for a die cutter. Very good point!
