From scraps to sophistication.!!!… Fully lined Khaki reversible design tote bag and matching cosmetic purse set. Those little squares have become tiny framed works of abstract art within the surrounding fabric. Why you may ask, has this become a set, rather than just a tote bag??? Well… if truth be told, I got so excited by the colours and and how nice the little squares looked, I completely forgot about the large crazy piece I had made ;-D LOL.
Having made the front into something of a triptych design, I then picked up my remaining (at that point) little crazy patchwork square for the reverse of the khaki tote surrounding that also at different angles until I had them the same size…..only then did I remember the centre piece I had intended to use…ooops!!!
So, by happy accident and then by design another little creation came into being 😉 – a matching make up bag/cosmetic purse – also reversible – Fully lined and with a coordinating zip
Next for the khaki multi pocket, I just had to make one more tiny crazy square to complete the look…a good many hours of hand quilting ensued…then, a couple of coordinating shoulder straps, a magnetic clasp and last but not least…one of the three beautiful metal buttons which I have been keeping back for something rather special, now was that time to use one as a feature on the centre flap, and, it matches perfectly!!
Carried away by the moment …I completely forgot to use the large centre piece I had intended…ooops ;-/ seriously, what is all this fabric doing to me???? All was not lost as it became it’s own unique creation in the end as well!!
