My selfmade bag


This is a selfmade bag, the front side and the back side. It is made of Japaneese silk. This bag, as it is, exists only once in this world.

ursula i love you. if you smoke weed(as i do) and loook at your silk handbags they will appear as little stuart little-sized beds, with headboards. just at least squint your eyes and see what i mean.

this approach works on that crazy gunter grass trans. of the yoga sutra, too.

Oh, you all like my bag, that's nice. I don't know if I'm talented, but I knitted a lot in my life.

Regarding smoking grass: I know what you mean. I had to test a lot in my life as I studied sociology. I wanted to say someday "nothing human is strange to me." Yes this bag reminds me of a time where I smoked.

That really is a beautiful bag, have you thought of having a little ebay shop

Ursula said...

Hi Skelly, thanks that you like that bag, too. I have an Ebay shop, but it is impossible to sell such bags on Ebay.

People on Ebay want to make a bargain.

The silk for this bag was more than 40 USDollars. It needs more than 8 hours to knit it. In case I want 20 Euro per hour (and this is not much) the bag would cost more than 200,- USD.

That's not a price anybody would pay on Ebay.

To produce things on your own is fun and then you really have something beautifully, but it is not a business.

But I'm glad you like my bag.

Wuah, that's a great site. So beautiful things on it. I start buying at once instead of selling. Thanks Tracy, very very nice.
