When we left Japan, I felt so sad about so many things, so I didn't take some things because I didn't want the memory of them. That included the bags I sewed for Little Miss O to take to school. I gave them away. Last semester, she had some things that I cobbled together as I was in a hurry and in a bit of a fug but which have since got a bit battered and are headed for the rag bag soon, I think. So, I thought I would do her the service of making her a decent and proper set of accessories for school. I went for a look that I am calling "psychedelic folk."
