RECYCLING - REUSING

One day my friend Cochava gave me a vest she did not want to wear anymore to do with it as I please. I loved its colors and its pattern. Cutting it up carefully I got enough material to make this very beautiful bag for my daughter Tanja.

This is unbelievably beautiful, Yael! I love the quality of the wood next to the soft fabric, and the black 'frame' with the piping. Your daughter is very lucky! The three metal buttons are so striking, and set everything off!

I love the composition of this, Yael. From the fabric accents on the handle to the angle of the stripes. Perfection!

Hi Mom, that is very interesting as I have not been aware that the fabric has been a vest once. I love this bag and even went out with it several times. I think it is very elegant.
Thanks for this nice present you have made for me. A kiss to you, Tanja
