You might remember that Pamela's husband drew my name for the fabric bomb and she kindly sent me a package of several Japanese fabrics. I scratched my head and sprouted a few more grey hairs before settling on....
I plan on making this up into a tote bag to hang from wooden handles I bought while in Japan 10 years ago. But there is more work yet to get this lady fastened to the bag fabric.
She reminds me of summer nights at festivals in Japan - hence I used the yellow ribbon as a reminder to me of the strings of lights over the food stalls at those festivals.
I am not an aficionado of applique or quilting but she's looking good and I have been taken out of my comfort zone a little. Thanks Pamela.
