Market bags....

I told myself I was not going to sew last night.. but I decided to make some purses anyway! I am soooo glad I did! I had an idea brewing in my head for awhile & I am happy when the finish product is super cute! I especially love the layered flowers..They are sewn on & made to be floppy! ;) These are sooo cute & a nice size too. I only have 4 at the shop so far. They are $25.00 each and most likely will be one of a kind & are machine washable.

They are all made with vintage reclaimed fabrics...

some polyesters & the cutest daisy terry cloth fabric!

I also made some sparrows on scrap fabrics in vintage embroidery hoops... I will share those later! (shop hours today are 10-4)

p.s. Gallery walk is this Saturday from 6-9pm.

Have a great day!
