How often can we say we can make something from virtually nothing? Below is a case in point. As you can see below these are scraps of fabric in very odd shapes;perhaps they could have been thrown away. Not a chance....these "scraps" are pieces of my daughter's wedding gown that were mailed to me by her seamstress after she altered her wedding gown several weeks ago. My daughter told me she would like a purse for her wedding day. At first she suggested that I make it from my wedding gown as I did for the ring bearer's pillow, but with the scraps of her dress below I decided to create a bag for her. It was not easy. You see my dilemma;curved scraps that would not behave in the sewing.
Nonetheless I forged ahead and sewed them together as you can see. With the addition of my wedding gown fabric as a liner, a my wedding gown button and some satin cording I was able to create this.....
I managed to cut some lace flowers from my gown to cover the cording's frayed edges inside the bag. She and I are very happy with the results!
Obligatory Knit Content: The Opal Tiger sock number one nears completion. The linen feather and fan shawl is growing. I know I promised pics of these but I've been wedding busy. They will come in time.
