Vintage Bags & Babies

I seem to be getting alot of use out of my new-old manequin!!!
I dont even know what I did before I had her!!!! This is a vintage bag refurbished that I made using a gorgeous old vintage curtain panel. As soon as I spotted the fabric I envishioned a bag made out of the top of the cutain panels where they are pinched. I just love it & Im keeping this one.

Actually, I like it so much I made a matching diaper & wipes tote,since the bags huge & will fit mega stuff!! I lined it & added a vintage button & loop of ribbon.
I thought that was kinda cute, & then realized I have a boy, so I will sell that one in my shop & make a boyishy one.
Here it is closed & open! These were fun, I will be hand embroidering the vintage patches on & then adding them to the shop eventually!
Well it turns out I have a stack of 6 sitting here now almost done.

Yep, it was a good productive day-not very many of those these days! I'm hoping for more of these days after we get back from Easter holidays away with our family. Done with the sewing-time to go blog reading!!

I think that you should keep the cute rosie one for yourself, I don´t think your son will mind, and it´s not for him but for you, isn´t it? Love your blog!

The bag is gorgeous--I can't blame you one bit for keeping it for yourself! I love that you set out to make yourself a wipe holder and ended up with a stack, LOL--good for you!

I love the fact that you saw possibilities in the top of the curtain--little ol' me-in-the-box would have probably cut the top off before deciding what to do with the fabric. Thanks for the idea!
