Hickory Stripe Patchwork











“It’s a farewell present for you” , said Nicole, a good friend of mine (who used to be my coworker).

My eyes were wide open when she handed it to me. We both looked at each other and started laughing so hard.

This patchwork was made with the fabric that was cut off from her favourite jeans and overalls.
(and I recognize each of them clearly. They’re from my favourite Japanese brand called  Chimala.) She kept all the (leftover) pieces of fabric after hemming and we used to joke about making bags with them.

Now here it is. She really made one.

I love it. I’ve been using it every single day since she gave it to me. It’s a perfect size to put all my notebooks, pens, mini Canon, and other little things together. It’s always in my bag (I like carrying small bags in my large bag.) wherever I go.

It was such a charming and thoughtful gift. This will always bring me back the nicest memory.

 Thank you, Nicole!

    What a thoughtful/lovely gift you received from your friend. May I ask where you get your coin purse/wallet from? Thanks!
