i love creating pieces of work that having some sort of connection. i had an old pair of corduroy trousers from monsoon. i wore them until, well until they wore out. then made them into a bag. i lined the bag with some liberty fabric, that i got in a sale a few years back. and for the first time used a magnetic popper to fasten the top. the fabric is so soft to touch.
when i was ten, i made a pencil case for school. i still have it. i knitted the case using different coloured wools. then stitched the zip in with wool too! i shall fish it out and post a picture sometime. i was so pleased when i finished it. i still get the same feeling when a project comes to an end now.
