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.
