Thoughts in Patterns and Stitches

It seems when I don't know what to say, I make something. This is for a friend who has lost her closest friend, and "I am sorry for your loss" just doesn't seem enough.

So I stitched my thoughts into this bag, the paisley pattern reminding me of tears, the elephants for not forgetting and the hearts for love

It might just bring a smile, or even a 'yuck', a break from the sadness and tears, even for a moment

I wanted to make it a little bigger than before so I altered the shape by making it wider. The outer fabric is Sandi Henderson, lining is Kokka, ribbon is Farbenmix.

Pin It Now!
