Tapestry bags: finishing touches

I've been enjoying designing these "portable pocket" tapestry bags. Most have two pieces of art from the Rijksmuseum Rijksstudio along with graphic elements that I add -- lines, dots, hash marks. Once the "suede" fabric (actually a sueded polyester cloth that has a lovely nap and sheen) is printed, I cut, sew, and put the finishing touches on them.
