In need of a little birthday gift (actually, a nifty bit of packaging for a milestone birthday gift for my niece, I decided to make a little pinch purse to hold the actual present (which–wink wink–is flat and green and foldable and features engravings of dead presidents).
I turned (again) to my stash of linen towels and decided to do a little freezer paper print. Of what? I wanted it to be both a little girly and sort of urban chic. Ultimately I was inspired by these ninja kokeshi at Temple7e. Do go and look and scroll down to see all of his fabulous takes on kokeshi (and other subjects). It looks like he does custom work, too–go see!
So here’s my ninja girl pinch purse. Happy birthday, sweetheart!
