Remember the tablecloth/bed cover I showed you the other day? Well I've combined it with some fabric I got off freecycle
and made a couple of tote bags.
One has an elephant on one side and a slightly chubby cheetah on the other (or it could be a leopard but chubby leopard doesn't sound as good).
Check out my arty photo shoot!
The other one also has an elephant, but on the reverse is a wildebeest (or it could be a buffalo!)
I've lined them with the other fabric and and put a pocket in. They can be used inside out too
They're for sale in my Folksy shop.
I dropped on three pieces of fabric at the charity shop yesterday
The first one is just over a yard of upholstery fabric
I love the second one which is dress weight and has a 1950s/60s feel about it. I can see it with pearls and 'Evening in Paris' perfume!
Only trouble is it's 36" wide and there's only 1 3/4 yards so I'm a bit limited what to use it for.
The colour is actually deeper than this, more like the first photo.
I think whoever priced it up thought no one would be interested in it, but I think it's great
what's not to like about these buildings,trees and bridges?
It's another dress weight and I'm thinking some kind of shift dress maybe. What do you think?
