Creating the Turtle Spirit Bag

These are photos of all the parts of a spirit bag. I machine stitched goddess figures on a watercolored fabric along with the words heal, dance, dream, imagine, and joy, and I machine-stitched geometric designs on the fabric for the strap. She asked me to use greens and blues in the design. Her spirit animal is the turtle.
I made the tiny beads added to the front from polymer clay. After baking the beads I hand painted them and coated them with Mop and Glow to protect the surface and add some shine. The three beads are a bird, lizard, and a fish to represent sky, land, and water.
After taking these pictures my camera's batteries need to be charged. Once I charge them I will take photos of the finished bag and some other things.
