Yesterday I started a small purse for a friend. Next Friday we'll gather for her birthday and I'll be presenting this purse to her.
I used my favorite Japanese yarn dyed "sakizome" fabrics for the background and again Japanese "konuno" old kimono fabrics for the yoyo embellishments. I have still lots of konuno yoyos at hand and I'm thinking about using them like this. Actually I made them for a yoyo hat project but I couldn't figure out how to sew it, so I gave up the project half way.
