We received an order of making 100 bags ( bags containing haldi-kumkum, rice, betel nut ) for a wedding ceremony . An offering of this bag and a gift was made to all married women attending the ceremony. It is a ritual performed to signify her marital status.
We came up with an idea of making dolls using thin plastic bags and filling rice for the body and betel nut for the head. These sections were tied using rubber bands and were covered later with some ribbons and lace. Other details were completed using fabric colours. We used stickers (bindis) for eyes and lips. Hope you like them.
