A Japanese friend came to visit last December, we didn't see each other for more than 12 years!
We were both exchange student in Rouen 12 years ago.
Thanks to Facebook, we are connected.
We both prepared a little gift to each other.
She gave me some vintage kimono silk from her family, hope that I can make use of them.
After a light wash and air dry.
I have used it for a clasp coin purse.
Another friend of mine is asking for an evening clutch.
I have made a clasp purse with a metal chaine with the vintage silk.
