Nice to meet you!



About nine years ago we designed and (some later) built our own house. People tend to say: your house will be perfect. I always answer that the house is not perfect, and that I'm neither stuck to it for the rest of my life. To be honest, I'm more stuck to our neighborhood. We have such nice people living around us, and then I'm talking about 10 families with their young kids. In our backyards they all play together on a save, harmonious way.
Today our neighbor twins and neighbor girl turn 4. Because I pick up the trendy word 'personalized' all around, I thought it would be nice to make them a bag that looks like them!



Here the finished bags are shown by L, before they disappear in wrapping paper. Note the yellow straps: a while ago some old judo belts were smiling at me in a thriftstore. Irresistible color to me! And don't you like the beautiful fabric samples of Kvadrat I used? I'm happy and love to give the presents in a few hours. Congrats, fresh 4-years-old!

Ze zijn leuk! Goede oplossing om van de jongenstas een rugzak te maken.

The bags are great looking. I like especially the Riemer one with the cap. I'm sure your neighbour kids will be delighted!
