Recycling for March

I decided to break my routine today and do my recycling project for the month.  Actually there are two of them but I only finished one.

I found an old embroidered tray cloth, full of holes, so after washing I cut out the embroidery and then framed it in some other fabric.  I had to join lots of bits together to get the finished piece because I only had a couple of pieces left over from what I had bought years ago.

This fabric is a traditional Dutch Chinz , lovely, but not much of it.

I made a flat bottomed zippered bag and added a tassel.

I started on a second, using the other end of the tray cloth, that I will finish to morrow,

All these recycled projects are destined for the sale table at the Qld Embroiderers Guild.  I have come to quite like that lady.

Shes very old actually, goes right back to the Mother Godess.  Just keeps reinventing herself.
