6 & 6 in 2018 - July Report

This is the month to report on a new project. I started and finished a bag using the sleeve of a silk kimono and old handkerchief.  I finished the ends of the drawstrings with little buttons I made from the same kimono piece.  




I have already started unpicking the sleeve of another kimono to make a second bag. Stay tuned...
