A mother and son collaboration launches a new talent
When my son, Alexander, was in kindergarten, I was creating prodded bags featuring big bold sunflowers. One afternoon while I was prodding gold petals on one of the totes, Alexander asked me if I would make a bag for him. Before realizing what I was saying, I looked up and told him what I tell anyone who asks me the same question. “No,” I said, “but I will show you how to make one for yourself.” Immediately he grinned and asked me when.
