Bag for Shit and Stuff.





I feel like I should preface this post with some sort of "sorry if this word offends you..." type of thing, but I won't. If I was truly sorry about that, I wouldn't post this creation here. In reality, I think this word is one of my favorites and I make no apologies for that. (But I am sorry if you accidentally read this in front of your 7 year old and didn't really feel like explaining to them why this is funny for people who can yield such words responsibly. Don't worry, it will be good for both of you.)





The CinciMQG had a challenge this month to make something that was up cycled. I've had this set of hand embroidered linens from an antique show forever ago, and I've only used one piece. (But that one piece won me my sewing machine!)

So between me wanting to use those again, wanting a wide pouch for my sewing shit, and always hearing Rachael tell everyone to "go make shit," this bag practically made itself. For the main body, I used a texty Mama Said Sew print and of course Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets for the lining. I love how great these fabrics look with the vintage bit.




But I'm most pleased with how right-at-home the embroidery looks. Almost like it's always been there on that vintage shit.


Come back Thursday for a new Film Petit! It's gonna be the shit! (Sorry, I seem to have opened the floodgates.)
