Featuring Tote Bags




Right now I am featuring tote bags in my Etsy shop. Yesterday I got carried away with this idea of taking the silk cuttings from my serger and arranging them on fabric. I covered it with tulle and free-motion quilted the top. What happened was I was serging some silk scarves for another project and when I got ready to throw out the cuttings they looked so beautiful that I just could not throw them away. So I decided to make something out of them. They add great texture. Please visit my shop to see more details.

That's a very pretty tote. Using the silk strips was a good idea. It adds a nice range of colors.

Stormee this is such a cool idea. I have trouble throwing away those little odds and ends too. I keep my bits of thread and floss that I snip from handsewing in a jar! I can relate. I think this looks lovely.
