Spring upcycle

I found this fabulous springy fabric at Goodwill. 
Sadly some company had already made it into a valence, but I rescued it and so far I have made 2 totebags out of it.
I think this is really what it was meant to be.

Now, to get going on the bedspread I found and turn it into a robe...................

Much Better as a tote bag. I can't wait to see the robe.

I had a fabric very similar to this years ago! Very spring-ish!

Will the robe be made from a chenille bedspread?

yes, it's chenille, but not the really plushy kind, the kind with the bumps that make a pattern. Not sure how comfy it will be, but I'll only be out $3 so I'm okay with it!
