This project was for my friend Jenny whose handicapped son died last week. She took this bag to the funeral and filled it with the essentials - glasses, tissues, wallet and phone. She has a passion for design and it helped to brighten her day. I love this class. I live at Lake Okareka, Rotorua, New Zealand. See the views - we run a Bed and Breakfast. I can visualise some Stupendous Stitching/Stitch & Slash projects appearing in the guest quarters very soon!
