2015 RSC December Turquoise Week 3, Two Totes Made From Deconstructed Men's Shirts
It's been a busy two weeks since my last post. Christmas sewing, totes, tiny zipper pouches, receiving blanket. My back was out about a week. Thankfully it returned. Lol. I have four turquoise occupied happy scrappy houses to add to my collection.
To see what others made with their RSC scraps go here Saturday morning.
I made another Everything Bag using deconstructed men's shirts. A piece of thin interfacing in the side pockets give them some body. Narrow pieces of batting in the handles give them body, too. This tote will be a gift. So far, I've made four Everything Bags. It's not a difficult pattern and people seem to love them. I'll probably make more.
I've made three of these small totes using 1.5" strips of deconstructed men's shirts. I sewed 14 strips onto batting. The strips were about 14" long. The handles were made from lengths of fabric 6" wide with a narrow piece of batting inside to give them body. I have pillowcases to sew and I'll be done.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas : )
