Butterfly & Retro Floral Totes

I love this floral fabric, I'm not sure how old it is. And the other print - vintage barkcloth in a neat little pattern. And the pale celery brocade - saved from the dumpster from an upholstery shop going out of business. Thrifty business! Handmade pledge! I took a break from sewing and am so refreshed! And used the elegant script on the selvage as part of the design. My friends laugh, but I love the edge and reverse of fabrics - often more interesting than the original! These pretties will make their way to ebay soon. Or if you're interested, by all means email me!

Great tote bags! I love the butterflies.

Sorry to see you were in a car accident, I hope you're alright.
