About mothers and handbags

Oversized shwe shwe bag. I use it for weekends away.

Brown heart bag. The centre circle motif was saved form a T-shirt a special friend brought me from London.

Black velvet and ribbon bag

Green raw silk bag with smocking detail

Hey Audrey!

My mom and I have a handbag thing. I (because I'm vegetarian) think leather bags unnecessary, and she likes sewing. So I make sketches of handbags, and then she makes them for me, beautifully. The green silk one she made as a birthday present for a special friend. Her love is evident in the time-consuming details. When I walk around with these bags, it feels as if my mom is right there with me. It's a good feeling.
