a small break

001After a few days of getting caught up on housework, sleep and emails, it’s time to tackle an unfinished project.  When Tina and I were printing the silk for our dress I threw some blue ink on the plate and ran through some fabric that I had in my stash.  I had exactly enough for a small tote bag.

I lined the purse with a scrap of vintage polyester stretch fabric in a houndstooth pattern.  It reminds me of a pantsuit I probably had when I was in fourth grade.  I love it.   The end result…
