From Thrifted Placemats to Stylish Clutch Bags & Upcycled Accessories.....

Some of my very first followers back in the day on Facebook might remember the days that I used to upcycle vintage placemats into unique one of kind clutch hand bags. Well I'm back at it again and working on some designs and will be selling them at up coming Suitcase Rummages.

Here is a clutch I finished this morning all elements (except the press stud closure) have been thrifted. A perfect size for a few ladies essentials for a fun day or night out. 


I've also been working on some other upcycled accessories, all with thrifted items. 

It's been a nice morning here with Sarah in the studio with me, she has been crawling around and pulling out my fabric and trimmings and having fun, maybe she is looking for inspiration.
