So inspired...

I made myself a couple of handbags out of local kitenge fabric and one of the male teachers got so interested that he asked me to make him one. I gave it to him two days ago and it has been the talk of the teachers. Today one of the other teachers had to borrow it and wear it all day. I noticed that while he was talking with a secondary student for about 20 minutes this afternoon, he too had to try it on.

Abraham Piper confessed that he likes bags too on his blog. So I thought I would let him and others know that it’s very macho here, even in this fancy fabric.

Hi Jan,
I'm glad to see your having time to sew. There must be a lot of beautiful fabrics to work with there. Great picture.
