I sewed this grocery bag complete with inner lining out of my dad's old shirt and painted leaf motifs on both sides- a green fern for spring, and a red maple leaf for autumn. To finish, I pinned the fabric owl brooch I bought from my friend Shu Ning for a cute touch. Isn't she (I think of it as female) a wee thing? I should give her a name. Check out Shu's other whimsical creations at www.flickr.com/momshoo or http://momshoo.etsy.com/. For local buyers, her line is carried at Doinky Doodles in Bali Lane and a Concept Story in Haji Lane. I'm going to carry this bag with me when I go grocery shopping in California. My dad didn't even recognize that it was his shirt!
