So I find some fabric. But it's not just any old fabric. It's a dress with the most wonderful celtic pattern on it.
I had no clue what to do with it at the time but I knew that it would come in handy at some point - how could I leave something as pretty as this in the charity shop?
The bottom of the dress was almost Aline which meant that there was more useable fabric available.
But what to do with it...
When my friend asked for a bag for her big birthday I just *knew* that she would love something made from the dress. The celtic pattern is so her.
So I cut off the bottom of the dress below the band and turned it upside down making a perfect bag shape!
Then I interfaced the ties and used them as straps. Thankfully they were quite long anyway.
As I was playing with the sleeves that I had cut off the dress I had an idea. What if I squished them, added homemade bias binding and turned it into a pocket?
Well, that seemed to work!!
With the addition of a label it was all ready to go... but would my friend like it??
Well, I gave it to her today and she seemed really quite happy with it.
That makes two of us!
