Just a bag

Just a small, simple, lined gift bag with a boxed bottom , padded bottom insert, and in-seam tie.
Custom ordered to present a special gift.
Orange and brown - fitting for who the gift was coming from -
that I just happened to have in my stash.

The recipient will never meet me, will never know who I am
(and unless he looks very carefully, will never see where I signed and dated my work).
The bag may never be used again.
But my simple little bag is now a continent away, in the possession of someone very involved in the world of textiles and fashion.

I know it is there, and that I made it.
And that in itself is very satisfying!

Very cool. That bag is really really pretty and looks very well done. Congrats.

The satisfaction of knowing your work is in the hands of someone a continent away, or on the other side of the planet, is such a wonderful feeling.
When people say they are giving my pottery as a gift to someone in Germany, it makes me feel special. I sign it all, but have you looked lately to see how many 'Higgins' there are??? I haven't, but I know it is a common name.
Love you sis!

That's a gorgeous bag... and I'm very intrigued by this story!
