    purse for a friend

    I made this for a dear Wintu friend. The first pattern is a Wintu basket pattern called Frog Fingers. The purse has different patterns on the 2 sides. The brown cloud fabric is just a bow for the gift.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Thank you. My Wintu friend does a great deal for us and our community, including teaching about local Indian basket making and other culture. She asked me to prepare coloring sheets for her elementary school class on Wintu culture. It became apparent immediately that almost all of the basket patterns she gave me would make good quilt patterns as well, so I made her a Wintu pattern lap quilt and this purse with one side Wintu.

    Useful and beautiful....I am sure your friend will be touched even more that you took the time to make a purse that is meaningful to her culture.

    How nice. I love your choice of fabrics.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
