One more, one more

You may recall the placket cloth bag I made last year. If not, you can take a quick peek at this index entry to refresh your memory ...
[Note: you'll need to scroll down a bit as the "placket cloth" posts will include this one]

This is what the placket cloth has become, front ...


and back ...


It was the undoing of the old ...


that enabled the remaking of the new ...


So now I have retired my commercially made stitch bag and will use this one instead. Don is already shaking his head imagining what I will look like when I carry both bags at the same time ...


Highly visible, I'd say ...

As I read these last two posts I kept thinking of Jude's baskets and the concept of "holding". Your bags are holders just like baskets. Holding stuff, holding memories, holding physical touch and mental discernment... Cloth is such a powerful sponge or trap for feelings and images. I can see the literal and metaphorical layers of those things in your bags and can imagine how much more rich they are for you. Lovely, life-enhancing work.
