New patchwork tote. Old and New fabrics called Big girls like pastels too. I considered selling it before it was made, but when Kate loved it too, I realised we had to have it. It will be mother - daughter shared.
Salvaged wooden rings from an op shop. Bias trim is brand new.
Corduroy sides and handles -my recycled cord jeans that I wore to bits. I love it that I can still wear it.
Old and new - salvaged embroidery, contemporary floral prints, plains from my stash and a gorgeous vintage "midcentury" pastel plastered tablecloth.
Kate plans to use it as an overnighter (It's big) and it will be perfect for work and play for me ;).
