So, one of my clients called me a few weeks ago while I was in the middle of doing multiple things and only partially listening to her...she starts the conversation with "My husband died yesterday and I want you to make 10 bags for me out of his clothes." It took me a minute to comprehend that sentence. When I finally digested it, I apologized for the loss of her husband and was rather shocked that she was calling me the day after his passing. As it turns out, he'd been ill for a couple of years so while it was unexpected at that moment it wasn't really unexpected. She had a voice of sad relief about her as she explained that family was coming in for the funeral and she wanted these bags to give to them as a remembrance of his life....such a sweet way to continue his memory. I didn't get pics of the before garments but these bags are 100% upcycled made from his shirts and his jeans. I also made a bucket hat that was also made from his jeans, when I showed it to her it brought tears to her eyes and she said, "he would love that he's making so many people happy".
