I was given some interesting material earlier in the year and when I made this bag I just thought no one would want to buy it, but they did! Perhaps the person who now owns it likes vintage cars, I did not ask at the time. I got rather attached to the bag, especially after embellishing it with buttons. Fortunately I do have more of the material to make another one.
In May my brother (also Jane's brother!) e.mailed us to say that he had seen the car that he owned 50 years ago (his first car) amazingly it was still 'road worthy'! The log book also has his name and the address where he was living at the time.
The car then
The car now
We both urged him to buy it back, but he said no. He used to pay me to clean it all those years ago, of course not enough for the privilege of doing it! As you can see there have been some changes made to the car, but the fact that it wasn't scrapped long ago is truly amazing.
