My new office manager Amanda has instigated a scheduled working week for me now, and as much as I like to complain about her love of organising, I'm in love with my schedule. Mostly because it has a section for working on PhD items every week. (Projects Half Done!) One of the things sitting in my PhD pile was this Carpet bag I started cutting out of a wool jacket I found at the Ty Hafan children's hospice charity shop in Aberdare. It was on their clearance rail so only cost me £1!
I cut the front panel out of the front of the jacket, keeping the original breast pocket as a feature. I added the jacket's original buttons back onto the front panel, using hot pink thread for a bit of an unexpected contrast.
