Now it’s a coaster for a teapot or a rice bowl or … many options..
but while I was working on it this morning in my studio…raining outside and a little bit chilly…I thought wouldn’t it be a good textile design for a futon or a sleeping bag…..yes a sleeping bag! Every traveller needs a personal sleeping bag….cause tucking yourself in your own warm and comfy sleeping bag feels like coming home..
