Mom is sort of homebound with the continual snow up there in Pennsylvania and she has been using the winter days for crafting and to redecorate her studio. I am showing a sweet tote bag she created using some interesting linens my sister received from her Cioci Maryann and this Irish lass was on one of them!
I forgot to take a before photo, but, the little lady was part of a pillow top with photos of the Irish flag.
Before a stitch was sown, Mom treated the little lady with a custom paint job! She was brightly colored until it went into the washing machine and so Mom retouched her to bring her back to life! I must say she mixed her colors perfectly, they blended into the original identically!!
She then surrounded her with vintage lace and mother of pearl buttons. You can see some of My Mom’s vintage laces in the basket.
The last time Mom was sorting through her lace and ribbon stash she came up with the idea to wrap them on vintage postcards! The postcards were a collection belonging to her grandmother.
Close ups of Lace wonderliciousness!!
Here we have the finished tote bag!
Mom carried her off to Bible Study the very next day!
Tomorrow, Mom and I are going to a ‘Quilt Hop’ in upstate New York! I will try to get a post up about our trip later in the week.
Gone fabric hunting!
We are joining the parties below. I hope you will stop by and say hello! The Hostesses work very hard getting these up each week!
