Vintage fun

6 Apr 2008


Well it's finished and on its way so I am going to share it with you.


This is my offering for the Shopping Tote Swap.
I changed from my original plan to use one of the bags I made a few weeks ago and decided to finish off a bag that has been hanging around here, half made for about a year.


The embroidered panel on the front is taken from a cot sheet my mum gave me, cot sheets that she used for her babies, me included.
It's a little kitten, very 1950s and cute.
The pink floral fabric is vintage as well, found at an op shop years ago.
I put a couple of little treats inside as well.
My swap partner is a teenage girl who like vintage things so I hope it is OK with her.

Please note that I have updated my previous post on 1940s Wisdom.
