Creative recycling ...is not only a wonderful thing but it very satisfying to see the end result. I love up-cycling and that was the idea behind the small bag, I made for miss sunshine. I got my sewing machine last November and to tell you the truth I don't know much about sewing. So this is my first practice project with my new sewing machine. I hope to get better at it in future...guess i need more research and practice. For this bag, I used gunny sack and old cotton dress of my daughter. I cut a square piece out of the gunny sack covered it with the cotton fabric and added colorful flowers made out of felt scraps. Here are some pictures...hoping to improve my sewing skills for the new project.
