a bag....or maybe not

I started to make this little patchwork bag, really like the way the three fabrics were used in the pleats...and then I thought 'what the devil am I going to do with this bag' I can only just fit my hand inside it, it's way too small to put all my junk in, I don't go places where I need a delicate little clutch bag.....
but it does.. sort of..look like a cocoon
I seem to have a thing for cocoons lately, snug little nests, somewhere to crawl into and hide from the world ....nothing to do of course with the fact that daughter has just moved back home, VERY temporarily, and we are trying hard not to invade spaces...

Really interesting insights on this one. I always find it interesting how projects take on a life of their own, and (SOMETIMES) reflect things that may be going on in our lives. Glad you shared this. Thanks!

thanks Mal, I think we surprise ourselves sometimes when our subconscious surfaces in our work and makes us stop and wonder where it came from
