Repurposed Applique Tote
This tote is made using a beautiful piece of hand dyed damask tablecloth with an intricate design which I machine appliqued onto it.
The piece of appliqued fabric was intended to be a focal design for a wearable art jacket which never got made and subsequently turned into a ufo where it hung on my design wall for some years before I decided to “repurpose” it.
The tote is one of several items I’ve been “creatively recycling” from old fabric and ufos that I have lying around, and you can read the full story on my blog at http://www.linda-matthews.com
This tote is made from a large applique design. Most of the applique is on the front of the tote ...
... and ends on the back.
The design was machine appliqued using a very tiny satin stitch, and then edged with a decorative stitch.
