I altered a couple more of my NYC souvenir cards. This is Frank Sinatra, circa 1965. Notice the cigarette. I thought it was funny having him looking up at New York, where, if he were around, he'd find no where to smoke!
I really wanted to find an image of something flying, but balloons would have to suffice. This image is from 1965, notice the camera.
I received this card, with real olive tree leaves on it, from my friend Katerina, in Thessaloniki. She's got it pre-dated, as part of her 365 project. Very Greek lovely!
Yesterday, a friend stopped by and I showed her the new bags that I'd made. She fell hard for this one and a matching small one (Pocket.) We talked about my name dilemma: What to call these because they are more than a tote, in my mind. She liked Pote but then thought Tope sounded better. What do you think? Tope? In any case, she bought this item and a matching small one. This is unique as I have no more of this fabric. I'm going to make a couple more tope/potes before I stop the sewing part of this endeavor.
As a post script, I've been glued to reports from London, where my friends are okay, but the devastation is unreal.
