MAKE DO AND MEND .... CREARE..SECONDO VITA

I have been inspired by this lovely cushion that was given to me by my sister Amelia when I was visiting her in England.As soon as she saw it she knew it was meant for me.The colours and designs are so pretty. I have decided to sew some bags using up materials I have already.
Ho deciso di creare delle borse usando stoffe che ho in abbondanza.Infatti l'idea e stato preso da questo cuscino che era un regalo da mia sorella Amelia.
A few lovely vintage buttons given to me by my Mom Chris.
Un po di bottoni vintage regalato da mia madre Christina.
So many to choose from.
Sono tutti belli,non so quale scegliere.....
This material I bought from Ikea a few years ago which I originally made into curtains but I no longer need them so I have a few yards to re-make into bags. This is the first of them and I just love the bright red floral buttons.
Questa è la prima borsa finita.La stoffa era da Ikea che prima avevo usato come tende ma adesso non servono piu, cosi ho deciso di riusare la stoffa.Adoro i bottoni rossi a forma di fiore.
