Is this a delicious idea?
My long-term friend is recovering from surgery. So I made her an art-bag!
We have often talked about her desire to start sketching but other facets of life got in the way.
I think that possibly now is the time to encourage this activity, as I can envisage her sitting on her front verandah, bathed in sunshine, with sketchbook in hand.
So I made this simple but functional bag which is filled with goodies – watercolour paints, sketchbook, pencils – all to inspire a pastime of sketching.
She loves horses, so the front panel of this calico bag, is a commercial fabric depicting horses but to make the imagery more subtle, it is covered with silk that has been screen printed – deconstruction style.
I really hope this “recovery gift” from my hands makes her smile.
