makes me happy



years back when i could stitch! i stitched this pattern, then turned it into a cushion.  a number of years after i decided to unpick the cushion and make it into a bag.  well the bag was on the 'to do list'.   the 'to do' wasnt done until now. 

each day when i pick my bag up i smile, this bag make me happy.  such a simple picture.

Oh wow! That design is gorgeous Em. It's so chic and pretty. Handmade is very fashionable. I bet you get people asking you 'where you got that fabulous bag?' :) I smiled when I saw it too. You're so clever and creative missy x x

Hi Em,

Great bag. I think you can only appreciate it all the more when you have made it yourself, glad it brings you happiness.

Sorry to read you have been having a rough time of it lately. Hope things pick up for you.

All the best

I love your new bag Em! It's great to think it was once a cushion and has now been 're-purposed'!

Em said...

hi nechtan

thanks, i started to make bags for myself when i realised bought bags often weight more than what i had in my bag! with my shoulders being a bit poppy-outy the lighter the bag the better.

love the picture of your daughter holding the rainbow.

hoping this flare is on its way out, although it did recur at the weekend. x
