Winter bag from recycled grey/yellow materials

For the first winter bag I made this year I used a different pattern. The patchwork is not regular, but consists of different shapes and materials.





The yellow flower material is from a woven tablecloth which I bought in the secondhand shop in Sparta.The yellow pieces are from samples of upholstery fabric as well as the big yellow flower.
The big white flower material was once a curtain and the pocket is cut out of a pair of trousers from a friend's daughter!

All pieces have their history!l

The small strip of yellow lace was sewn at the bottom of one of my dresses. I liked the dress, but not the lace, so I cut it off. Now it will get a second life!









The yellow lace is machine-made, but the white lace that you can see above is made by my late mother-in-law. It is not really lace, I think but English embroidery. Once it was a nice doily, but now it is in a bad state because of intensive use. The good pieces are ready for a new life!
Below a detail.

The second winter bag is a rust coloured one, which I showed you already in an earlier blog. I am ready to make some more!! Time to start working!

Wat een mooie tas! En wat heerlijk dat je in Griekenland woont. Manlief en ik zijn er 12,5 jaar geleden getrouwd :)

i so enjoy looking at your lovely bags. We are starting to BYOBag for shopping here. I made a few but yours are so nice. Yours must have a better future than mere shopping bags but isn't it fun to make everyday items as pretty as possible! You always give me ideas.

A lovely bag.
Like the colour combination and, of course, the old white embroidery
