Welcome to my shop where you will find accessories created from vintage and recycled linens, lace and fabrics together with a selection of vintage and upcycled sewing supplies - including vintage lace. Accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing, fabric painting and crazy patchwork may be found in my other shop 'Lynwoodcrafts'.
A practical and pretty, cross the body, messenger style bag, the flap formed from a vintage, lace-edged table mat, with added vintage embellishments.
The flap was the starting point for this bag since I wanted to take full advantage of the unusual and pretty lace edging! I have merely embellished the flap a little with the addition of four vintage linen laundry buttons, two vintage pearl buttons, a length of vintage lace trim and two sympathetic, if new, flower motifs. The bag closes with a stitched cotton loop over another laundry button - padded and covered with more embroidered vintage linen. The strap is embellished with snips of embroidered linen, vintage lace and more laundry buttons. The bag and strap are from recycled jeans.
The bag is lined with a new striped blue, turquoise and white fabric. The strap is backed with white ribbon.
Height: 22 cm approx
Width : 28 cm approx
Strap length: 121 cm approx.
These jeans were out-grown rather than worn out, but had still been washed many times in use. I soaked them in a white bucket to check for dye-fastness - the water may have been very slightly blue - I couldn't tell! Please be aware that dye might still transfer in some circumstances.

A pretty tray cloth needed a new purpose and looked lovely combined with recycled denim.
