Finding yummy vintage textiles can be alot like a Cinderella story.
If the piece has holes or stains, it might get cast aside without a second glance.
Some pieces still have so much good left in them. The holes and stains can be snipped off with plenty of great fabric left to use.
Take a second glance and look for the good.
This is a flea market bag I recently made, mixed with a hodgepodge of vitage fabrics.
Sorry for this terrible phone pic!
This is the girl in progress - flap and straps not yet attached.
I used a super soft vintage chenille blanket, pompom trim and a cotton damask tablecloth for the ruffle.
Inside, she is lined with a vintage sheet and the tablecloth for pockets. Again, sorry for the poor phone pic, ha.
A little bibbity, bobbity, boo
I pinned a linen rosette and doily to the front.
I am not settled yet on which combination I want to use to adorn her but this is what I am going with for now. What can I say, I am a bit fickle about some things.
This girl has plenty of room to tote whatever may be needed on flea market days ~ and then some!
Out of a crazy mix of fabrics, she is my favorite flea market bag.
Do you have any favorite fabric rescues?
Thank you for stopping by!
