Kimono Frame purses / Family Fun Hawaiian Night

Two Kimono frame purses are finished. The red & olive one has an amber-look frame and a classic chain handle. I sewed a Kimono patterned cotton on a medium weight cotton canvas. Added some beads embroidery for embellishment. The green one has no handles. It is an elegant clutch. I made bold stripes with Kimono cotton on a canvas. The frame is a shiny silver kiss lock and the fastener has very detailed angel wings as a decoration.

The lining is a canvas print. This flower print is my favorite. I use this as a lining pretty much. I hope it is still available at my local Joann fabric. There is a little pocket inside to avoid your tiny belongings to get lost in the bag. These bags are going to be sold at Junk Evolution in South Bend in April (from the first Friday).

Yesterday evening, we attended the Family Fun Night at Nina's school. The school holds those exciting events once a while for fundraising and we are big fans of those events. This time, the theme was Hawaii so we dressed up like Hawaiians (My clothes are the most Hawaiian I could find in my closet! It didn't look like that, though d:). We had a Hawaiian pizza, played fun games (like Limbo dance and hot hot coconuts) and took a couple of Hula lessons! I appreciate the staff and volunteers who organized these kinds of school events. It was a delightful night!

Thank you for reading. I hope you have a great weekend, Aloha!
