Why? Well, I'm not too sure...
- I am right handed, very analytic, good at logic, extremely organized, highly obsessive, strong-willed, and I like to plan things out...this makes me left-brained.
- On the other hand (no, I am not ambidextrous, but I did try for a couple months. Failed.), I am highly creative, love music and art, I see things uniquely, I love to write, and I am rather daring and crazy...this would make me right-brained. (I just took this test and it told me I was 45% left brained and 55% right-brained. Pretty accurate for something on the Internet)
But I am who who I was created to be, I like me that way and if you don't, too bad, it is not my fault. Take that one up with God...
I basically love creativity because it is art. I delight in the ability to take something and form it into something else, unlike anything anyone else has.
So, having made so many roundish, appliqued bags, I was getting bored. Plus my purse, the cool converse-y one, had seen so much love that the handles were wearing through and the poor thing needed to go into retirement.
Obviously I needed a new bag.
Obviously I wasn't buying one.
Obviously I had to make it!
And this time I made it totally different, just to see if I could.
Out of the scraps of other peoples bags and other random sewing projects I created my latest masterpiece. No appliques, no round edges. Instead, it is a cornucopia of quadrilaterals!
It is just a little crazy, but seeing as it is for me, I think it is just perfect!
If you stare closely, you might be able to find a swatch of fabric that looks familiar to you. I spy Emikel's bag, several of my own bags, my shirt, Sam's bag, my sister's bag, Sarah's bag, Julia's bag, a bag for Kendra's sister, my mom's bag and some other random stuff...
I also decided to put some of my extensive collection of buttons, from concerts and travels, to use.
Now, I am happy and you are jealous.
