Is everyone ready to get started!!?? I am.
I've narrowed down my first projects for Make & Mend and I'm excited to get started on them.
First off I was excited a recent supply purchase came in. When I was at the Queen Mary a couple of weeks ago, one of the gals had this delightful burlap sack purse. It was modern, but I thought it was so cute. I recently came across a modern burlap potato sack, and I thought what better time than to make one.
I have this amazing 4 page WWII booklet on how to make grocery bags, but for the life of me I can't find it! I know I'll find it one day, when I'm not looking.
The bamboo purse handles I got from this website. They were a great price but shipping was a lot because they came from Australia. Still, they were just what I was looking for.
I want to make a larger everyday bag. I'll line this with some cotton I have from my everyday stash.
Also, I want to make a white rayon crepe version of my newest repro.
I don't have any white dresses, and I think this will be so cute in a flowy rayon crepe. I have some rayon that just might be enough, but I have to make a mock up first. I'll use this fabric for that. I got it at a per the pound sale and it's got a great drape.
I also got a pair of light wood handles for another purse. I'm not too sure what I'm going to do with those yet.
What is everyone else starting on?
