not at a mall near you...

I love to rubber stamp on textiles - especially bumpy old barkcloth and other imperfect weaves. "vintage" and "stuff" are always popular labels, forget those high priced designers :)



And I love to sew scraps off old fabrics together to create one-of-a-kind pillows, swing purses and roomy flea market totes. Adding some buttons and making flowers out of twill tape or vintage trim.
My girls have each claimed a little swing purse from my recent stash for carrying their DSiXL, trinkets & wallets around. They are perfect for flinging over their shoulders and the good old fabrics are forgiving of daily wear and tear.
Unique!

What an awesome bag. I love the brooch, too. Is that seam binding to make the petals? Great!
