Recycle and Reuse!

I recently received some suits that were on my husband's side of the closet. I did not look at them as suits at all. To me the fabric had done it's duty and now it was time for it to have a little fun! Each suit was a dark color navy with pinstripes, charcoal and black with pinstripes. I found bright fabrics to match like this Amy Butler print Pressed Flowers in Turquoise and white with a white paisley design and patch worked it together. Now my Sew Spoiled Ladybug Mini purse looks classy and sharp.

What fabric do you have in your closet? What about the people around you? Do you have a dress you can no longer fit into but has incredible memories? Then give it a new life as your favorite bag! Make more memories!! Find fun fabrics to use from your stash and make something beautiful that you can use again! Have fun!
Happy Sewing!
