Womandala Bag - Mandala Pouch

Almost two years ago I embroidered this Mandala.
As many of the thing I make, it didn't have any other purpose than making me happy while working on it. I store these "purposeless" things I make and makes me happy to look at them from time to time.

Two days ago, I was reading Stage One of the Grand Round of the Mandala in the Mandala Workbook I talked about on my previous post and in an instant, I knew what to do with my embroidered mandala.

I pulled my mandala out, cut it out along with another piece of linen to use as a lining and piece them together with blanket stitch.

Then I worked out a crochet border with holes following instructions from an old book. I had never done crochet before! Took me all day to do this.
I made two twisted cords to open/close my littke pouch , added two beautiful big glass beads I had 
 and voila!

My gorgeous Womandala Bag is ready to store little treasures and secrets.

It was challenging, I learned a little crochet and also somethings about myself.
It was a very rewarding exercise and I feel very proud of myself!

Now of to my journal to write about it, as part of my 2015 self-exploration journey.
