I know an artist!

A true artist!

You of those people who can take pen, pencil, paint and paper and make beautiful pictures!

This artist friend drew my logo for me.  I called her and said  " I have this in my head  "  and she put it to paper...perfectly!

And so to say thank you I wanted to return the favor...but, I didn't think she would have much use for anything I would draw...


I may not be able to draw or paint


With old clothing, a set of old curtains,
a western shirt from my thrift store stash
and a piece of vintage fabric...

I'm an artist!

I started with a pair of shorts her hubby wore when
they married and jeans she had saved that her boys wore as small children.


 All the denim in this bag came from those three items only. 


You will see paint,

worn spots and mending...

proof that they were worn and loved.



Useful and Fun!



Diane,  I hope you enjoy using your bag as much as I enjoyed making it for you.  Without your talent, I would not have my lovely dumpster diver. She is perfect in every way and exactly what I wanted...thank you so much!
