Today I had a blast making a couple of new bags. I was lucky enough to come across some really cool vintage linens last Saturday....... two in particular were screaming ...... "Large Market Tote Bag". So I listened and here is what I came up with:
I call it the "Carry Around"........ only because it's big enough to be able to carry around just about anything you want! I haven't seen too many tablecloths of this age without spots, stains or a hole of some type.... these kept their colors really well which makes them even more exciting to me! Yes, this is exciting..... I have no life remember?
Anyhoo........ I have another tablecloth that I just cut to make another for tomorrow. This one has great colors also except these are way more muted. It has large yellow flowers with some sage green leaves. I can't wait to get my hands on it. (Lets just hope those who visit it on Etsy like it too!).
Here is the other I made. This one is from a vintage quilt. I don't like this one as much but I know there are those who do: Here it is: right here.
I'll be working on an order I got from a friend from Church on Sunday for two of these:
I love making these for Amelia Claire. The back is open like a halter and ties with more ribbon. Add those bloomers and it's just too cute. I've already picked out which fabrics to use and can't wait to get going on them too! I guess I'll be busy the next few days.......... I've been trying to stay that way to keep from eating everything in sight. Tonight was our Fat Lady meeting at my house. Every month we're "supposed" to decide on 3 small changes to incorporate into our days until they become habit. It's a great concept and actually works. This month I'm NOT going to lick the spoon or keep tasting supper as it cooks. I think I eat an entire meal while cooking. Then, I'm going to get up and get dressed, do my hair and makeup before anything else......... including checking my email. Then, the third change is going to be to pull Amelia around in her ultra cool wagon her Daddy built her last Christmas. We did this today and was so much fun. She hollered "Yee-Ha" the whole time!
Anyhoo...... Ya'll have a great night. Go check out these things I've seen this week and love:
