This bag started out last year as one of their $2.50 seasonal items.
I removed the poly lining and used it as a pattern. I quilted some leftover silk remnant to a flannel scrap to make a new lining and hand stitched it to the bag top through the straw, just the way the previous lining had been attached.
Then I used Beacon Fabric Tac glue to attach the fringe....leftover from the guest room project. I cut panels from that retro print from my recent shower curtain project and zig zagged it onto turquoise leftover tencel fabric to make panels. Looks like it might have come from one of the chic little expensive boutiques here in town. All for $2.50, leftovers and my time.....priceless.
PS: I love this wavy blade rotary cutter, like having rolling pinking shears!
