Can I call this bag "Too White For Janice"?
Much of the time while I was cooking it up, I kept "hearing" Serendipitous Janice in my comment box saying; "Too white for me!"
And not in a bad way. Just cute.
Reminded me of this magazine spread I once saw of a woman languishing in a perfectly white and pink, ornately decorated living room. The article went on to explain how she had designed her home to be "family friendly" for her two sons, and her dog.
Those were either pretend children, or highly, irrevocably repressed.
(I'm getting a feeling that if I were pitching for sales..... I should really talk about something else). Never was much good at stuff like that.
Now, for women like you and I who prefer to take our pink and white living rooms with us.... Here is the bag for us! (How am I doing now?)
Seriously. What used to be a pretty tacky sweater or really short housecoat, or homemade project gone bad..... Is now a sweet bag. I found this sweater/housecoat/what-not-to-wear at the thrift shop and was immediately drawn to its perfectly unworn chenille. Gorgeous porgeous chenille. Collaged together with a few of my several trillion hankies and scraps, it turned out great.
Have you ever just looked at a hanky? I mean gazed at one? Little works of art. Simple beauty.
