This summer I had to go to a wedding and a baptism, so I made myself a neutral little purse of all recycled fabrics.
The base of the bag is cut out of a thick shirt. The top is part of the closing strip of the shirt. I cut up a embroidered doily my mother-in-law made. It was already torn and had holes in it! It is beautiful, it deserves to be recycled.
Also an old curtain with sea motives is cut up and used as well as a duvet cover I bought second hand.
I still have some crochet edges, also made by my mother-in-law. She was a great crocheter and has made lovely things (and a lot!) . Good use for them too.
Last year I made two little bags. The first one to go with a skirt I have. The skirt was too long, so I shortened it and used a piece of it to make the bag.
Here it is, made out of linen and to be more festive I stuck a corsage on it.
And the last one. I really like this collier and wear it a lot. So I matched the bag with the collier and scarf.
