Yuri Rocks!

My new pal Yuri is one rockin seamstress! Together we made this reversible tote bag, which looks simple but to me, was unbelieveably complicated. To be honest, I secretly wanted to quit and throw the fabric pieces in the closet. It took us two days and two sewing machines. Her $99 NEX special is far superior to our expensive, complicated one and works more consistently. Jose, if you are reading this from across the globe, I know you are thinking that the problem always lies between the machine and the chair, and I'm sure you're right! Anyway, we are going to make her a smaller but wider version for a "handbag", then later this week return to Kamakura to get more fabric for our next project, whatever that may be.
