This beautiful orange and green floral fabric was found in a trash and treasure shop in Newtown, Sydney a year ago. Sometimes, it’s hard to actually make that first cut in to a fabric you have fallen in love with – but it has to be done. This fabric has been transformed in to an elephant and now a hobo bag – the Emma hobo bag designed by SusieDDesignsUK. The calico lining was found in a Melbourne op shop, in perfect crisp condition. I love finding fabric in beautiful condition in second hand shops and markets – beautiful to look at and beautiful to feel.
