Still bagging along!
Remember those calendar tea cloths that your grandma probably had hanging in her kitchen? I have been watching them in vintage re-sale shops and it occurred to me that it would be neat to do something with ones that are from special years. Oddly enough, as soon as I decided I wanted to pick some up to do something with them, the first one I came across was one for me! What are the odds on that really?
So here it is as I was starting to cut it up........
Then I added some vintage fabric from my grandmothers stash........... yes I come from a long line of fabric hoarders collectors. Then I found some cute ball fringe in the stash I inherited from a non family member.
And Viola! a new tote.
And the back of the tote. The big guy suggested I embroider a circle around my birthday on it, but I think that might be a bit much. ;-) I never knew I was born on a Thursday, kind of cool!
Tomorrow (or when I get back on here) I'll blog my next vintage textile totes. Bet you can't wait huh???
