 I made a little wall hanging from it by sewing the handles on and some more text and decoration.Now it looked like a re-used paperbag and that was the whole idea.

Ik ben weer in Florida en heb eindelijk weer eens uitgebreid de tijd om creatief bezig te zijn. Heerlijk!
De inspiratie kwam van een oude techniek. Ik kreukte h…
