Collage idea

This rather avant-garde purse by The Poppy Tree, is made with vintage scarves and patches.
I find this sort of work the most inspirational.
It makes me all fluttery inside-- the same thing happens when I look in Japanese craft books.
This kind of collage works well in memory projects also, collecting things like Girl Scout badges and old jewelry next to grandma's scarf.
