My first Elegance tote bag

IMGP8783This is my first “Elegance” tote bag made from a pattern designed by SusieDDesignsUK. It is made from recycled fabric – a home deco floral fabric I found in a Melbourne opportunity shop – there was just enough for this bag! I love the vivid colours. And another recycled fabric from an op shop in a deep maroon gabardine fabric was the perfect trim – topped off with lovely large buttons I found in a collection my mother gave me that she had found at the Bowerbird Boutique op shop in Euroa, Victoria. I was very happy to have my first Elegance bag featured on the Susie D Design blog page:

About Theresa

My mother taught me to sew and knit when I was six years old. I had a toy sewing machine that really worked and I made clothes for my dolls. Later, I made clothes for myself as a teenager, then for my children when they were young. Now I love to discover vintage and recycled fabric, rescue them from the bottom shelves of opportunity shops and transform them in to bags and soft toys. As Seams Different, I love to see old fabric given new life, bringing colour and floral patterns out of the dark and in to the world where they belong.
