Make Love Not War

This is the image that materialized while I was at the Holland Performing Arts Center in Omaha listening to a Mozart symphony. You never know.

I can see that the butons might not be bright enough, but they are the ones I chose from my mother's and my mother-in-law's button boxes.

I did originally mount the front on a quilted flowered square with the fringe hanging down, but it wasn't working for me, so I just made it into a flat bag, with a plain piece of denim on the back and two simple handles. Everything is stitched from the top. I even know who I'm going to give it to - she will love it because she's a 21st century hippie!

It is deja vu isn't it, altho I never was a hippie.......
At least you did it, good for you Katie.
When it comes to denim, I have no imagination, so this is a good challenge for me to learn something.

Very nice. I was never a hippy but it does bring back memories of those days.

I do think the peace symbol is perfect for denim. I also think you are right it did need to be a bag.

I wish I could have been a hippy. Just missed the whole Woodstock thing by a couple of years! Denim, peace signs, fringe... what can I say, "Groovy, man!"
