The Thing She Carried
Someone had given it to her, she said, and she loved it. She just wished it was bigger. Like a tote bag, she said.
I asked if we could get a photograph of the bag -- I wanted to try to make a similar one for myself. She went me one better. "I'm an interior decorator," she told me, "and I have left-over fabric galore. How about I bring you some and you give it a try -- make one for each of us -- I'll bring the fabric, you provide the labor."
Such a deal!
My version, I think, is a bit tamer than Kristine's. And it is certainly bigger. Inside I added three pockets -- a long narrow one to hold pen or pencil, a shorter wider one to hold keys, and a good sized one on the opposite side to hold other things.
I didn't have rhinestone pins for decoration. But I did have a really nice ladybug button that I thought added a little something. I'll be handing it over to her this coming week.
I hope she's pleased.
