sow’s ear

24 February 2008

You cannot, so the saying goes, make a sillk purse out of a sow’s ear.

You can, however, make a silk purse out of some recycled sari yarn, some linen scraps, and a button. Though it might be a bit hairy and wonky.

But you can tell yourself those are design features in the wabi sabi tradition. And in any case, making it will keep you occupied late into the night while you’re waiting for the coffee to wear off so you can go to bed.
