When I saw them for the first time I fell in love; I wanted to piece them together and make something ASAP. I was in need of a purse, so I quickly made a small cross-body quilted tote with a pretty bow sash.
I made this in the early stages of my sewing life so forgive any uneven seams. I used it for a while, but I quickly felt the need for something bigger. I washed it and recycled the patchwork into a Pocket Clutch made using a Keyka Lou pattern.
This is how it turned out, I used the patchwork for the outside, and used other vintage scraps for the inside of the clutch. Even the button was vintage on that clutch which found a loving home the moment I put it up for sale on my Facebook profile. This made me think of reincarnation, I have no idea if people can reincarnate but I'm sure fabric does. I wonder if it will ever become anything else.
