Ava Childrens Purse, cotton, acrylic and felt, dry-clean. 5in x 5in
As far as she can remember, Linda always kept her hands and mind busy creating things. As a young girl after WW2 in Germany, Linda started weaving, knitting, crochet and sewing her own clothes. Later as a mother of three living in France, knitting was her main hobby, but she also tried all kinds of different needlecraft, as well as jewelry making with whatever material she found suitable.
Years later when living here in Connecticut, besides some mosaic work, knitting and sewing were Linda’s hobbies of choice. She is especially interested in recycling. For her purses, Linda uses belts as shoulder straps and embellishment and also some hardware for purses and necklaces (drawer pulls, washers, bobbings etc).
