Whats in my sewing room today?

I've been hanging on to this little piece of vintage embroidery for several years.  The other day I decided to turn it into a little purse.  Now it's out of my drawer and feeling useful again.  The top was a little bland, so I dug into my stash of embellishments and found just enough red pom pom fringe to go accross one side.
Then I have some pieces of selvage left over from the last selvage project, so I stuck them together with some handed down bias tape to make a potholder from basically nothing.  This seems to be my specialty lately!  Next post I'll be showing you what I can do with those great woven plastic bird seed bags.............
bet you can't wait huh?
