repurposed





little cloth bags.
repurposed completely from pre-loved fabrics.
the pinks above are made with indian cotton, thai cotton, and thai silk.
 
 

 
these two made from old army shirts,
nice to make use of the little pockets from the sleeves also.
 
 
 
 
 
this one below i've made for myself to use.
 

 
made with bits of cloth from some of my old clothes . . .
 
 

 
each piece of cloth carrying a memory . . .
 
 

 
i love mixing up the colours and textures.
 
 

 
finished off with a lovely little beach pebble button
from the west coast of scotland.
handmade by Kirsteen from SewISea.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 stitching together little scraps leftover, to save waste.
and because i like the slow rhythm of the simple hand-stitching.

  2. Each one is lovely and they look as though they are made so well.
    I also enjoy hand stitching.

    Since winter Salon is on my mind.... the last piece looks like a cheerful gathering that is being made as we enter the time of winter salon. I enjoy interpreting the themes any which way or even loosely sometimes.
