Playing in the Studio – Part 2

One more project completed over the long weekend.  I have had a couple of vintage purse tops stored away for quite a while, one gold and one silver.  The top flips up, and then the top frame opens up accordion style.  Dipping once again into the wonderful fabric pieces from A Gilded Life – I knew I had finally found the perfect piece to make a bag using one of these purse tops. The cream roses, gently tea-dyed, sets off the bag just perfectly.  I lined it with some Shabby Chic fabric I had stashed away.  For the handle, I used a long silver chain and wove tea-dyed seam binding through it to soften it a bit.  The lid was embellished with a layering of antique laces topped with a vintage photo printed onto fabric.  I just love the way this bag turned out.  Elegant and oh, so special, it’s another reason to use those treasure stashed away.  Let them shine and be seen!
