The first project is another one of my Sash Totes. I've made a number of these since last year, but most of them had been spoken for before they ever made it to Etsy or the website.
This one wears a sash made out of two fabrics by Heather Bailey; A small pink print on one side and a brown and blue "Pop Garden" fabric on the other.
Also made a few linen and vintage fabric pouches...
And finally, a vintage monogrammed towel gets a new lease on life as a fabric gift sack with matching tag. Paired with a denim ticking stripe, it has a rustic charm.
These are fabulous to use as a house-warming or hostess gift when filled with:
* a bottle of wine and a loaf of french bread
*a trio of tall pillar candles
*a pretty mug, flavored coffee, and biscotti
*fresh apples, favorite recipes, and glass jar filled with oatmeal crumble topping
The chances of finding vintage monograms that match our own are slim, so why not just make up a cute saying that fits the initials. This one is either "S H" or "S K". How about...Sweet Home or Suzy Homemaker...Super Kool or Special Kindness. (Hey, its late, I'm sure you could think up something more clever.) :)
Thanks for letting me share my latest projects! Have a great week, everyone!
