i found this silver tote bag while i was thrifting last week. i had been coveting this one:
which i still may have to get. probably not, but a girl can wish.
and to spice up the thrifted pleather tote, since its not nearly as cool as the real leather Fossil one, i thought to add this fabric as an outside pocket.
well this is the piece i remembered, eventually, anyhow. the tote was begging for an outside pocket, since it had none, in or out, but i had to go through half of my pile of embroidered pieces to rediscover this piece of some kind of hooked or crewel work on silver! perfect match.
so i lined the soon to be pocket with muslin and pinned it in place and sewed three sides and behold, a pocket!
personally i Love shiny, silvery, sparkly things, even if it looks like a bag an old lady in florida would use, it makes me smile.
off to the smashing rubbish studios,
