stretched to the end

A friend sent me a picture of the wallet I made him some 3 years ago. He tried to make it last forever. I’d say he did pretty good. I’m really impressed he used it so well. I like to see the things I make wear and travel. I still remember this mesh came from a rice sack from Mexico, found in Illinois. The plastic edging came from a bag found in NYC. The wallet has lived in Iowa.

A friend recently sent me these pictures of a wallet I had made for him two years ago. I am quite pleased to see it has weathered well! This particular one was made from a rice bag I found behind a mexican restaurant in Urbana-Champaign, IL and plastic edging from a bag from NYC. I think its interesting to see how things are worn and how they accumulate dirt. It’s fun to see where things have been. Yay! Thanks Mark!

Why yes, what a splendiferous wallet it does make!

Yushi bag turned Yushi Wallet

Another adventure in making!

I really needed to update my style – my previous wallet had one year of miles – it was made out of part of a clay bag and a lemon bag in Belfast+Bar Harbor Maine!
