My niece turned sweet sixteen this week.
Each night over the past two weeks, I have been quietly making yo-yo's and searching through my button collection for little treasures, so I could sew her a new bag to hang on the back of her wheelchair. (you might remember the last one I made her, a few years ago - scroll down to the cherries)
I've learned since that first bag - the shape needed to be more "horizontal" and the handles needed to be longer, so as to comfortably fit over the chair's handles. I also wanted this one to be a bit more sophisticated, but still happy and bright - just like her :)
what better match than denim and carnival stripes?
and of course, it had to have her signature "J" on it!
I thought we could all use a little brightness and cheer after the terrible events of last week.
