Tote Bags with a Vintage Flair and or Ruffles, a set on Flickr.I completed many new tote bags. I have been sewing up a storm but having fun using many vintage embroidered linens, vintage crochet doilies, vintage lace and vintage jewelry. I buy so many of these materials at estate sales mostly because I just like them. It's a great feeling to finally use them to create something new. Up-cycling is something I truly enjoy.
I have also played with lots and lots of ruffles! I have been thinking about making these tote bags with ruffles for many months now. I used some of my favorite fabrics on these ruffles. The only problem is I have too many favorites. I find myself being "attached" to some of these bags but I know when it comes times for all the summer shows, I will be ready to part with them (assuming people even want to purchase them).
Too many pictures to add to this post so I thought I would try something different.
A Slide show using Flickr. When you click on one of the photos above, it will take you to my Flickr album "Tote Bags with a Vintage Flair and or Ruffles." This will show you one photo at a time but you then have to click the next photo. However, if you look on the right side column, and you click on the set "Tote Bags with a Vintage Flair and or Ruffles" then it will take you to where you can click on slideshow and view the photos in a slideshow format.
