I was trying for a ginkgo leaf. It was a whole lotta stitching, which I really enjoy.
But, it’s more of an umbrella. It was more of a design issue than a technical thing though. I really love it. And what’s better than one Ginkgo- brella?
Four Ginkgo-brellas!!!!!!!!! I love learning stuff!!! I’ll be making more…that are maybe a little more leaf like.
I’m so lucky to have the help of Jenina Mella. In addition to doing most of the organizing and all of the cooking, she’s been trying out bag designs for our retreat swag bags.
These are laminated envelope bagsAnd this one (my favorite) is a clever origami drawstring style bag.
She’s a super talent! The retreat is getting closer and closer, I can’t wait!!!
