Kristy and I had breakfast at Cracker Barrel this morning.spent a couple hours hitting the resale shoppes.
We found some great things,Kristy's finds were several vintage garments, A long brown sweater (floor length~) has tans and deep gold threads,,vintage buttons..
a tan crochet blouse,chocolate color linen Knee pants.
Great colors for autumn~
My find was 3 vintage ivy plate holders,3 bed jackets,you cannot find a bed jacket in the stores.
I cut the bib off,
add tattered rags and laces attached it slightly slanted on the front,makes a great extra pocket for keys and cell phone.
I then cut the straps off.keeping the clasps on..attached them together added trims..now the straps can be clasped onto the denim bag using the original pieces
added my vintage tag to the back,added lace trims to back pockets
I sewed the bottom together,and then boxed the corners.
