Now it's beach time!
Yesterday one of my friends went to Gytheion with her family. They go with the caravan. That's great when you have children. I used to do that and I loved it.
She took the bag I made for her with her. She was very pleased with it, also because I used a piece of material she had given me, that had emotional value for her.
I love to search for materials in old shops and I also use recycled fabrics. If I like the design, I cut up cotton shirts, skirts, tablecloths, sheets and whatever else I can find in cotton or linen. For the quilt I am making at the moment I cut up a brand new tablecloth. A friend who saw that couldn't believe it. She would have loved to have the tablecloth. I got it in the old shop in Kalamata. It is made by Πειραϊκη Πατραϊκη. This factory closed years ago, which is a pity, because they made beautiful stuff, in a very good quality.
This bag I made for a friends birthday
