I’ve made a second tote bag using a Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements fabric print. It is like impossible for me to resist this line of fabrics. They say “come on, come on, let’s go home together”.
I also love this grungy lining print I used. The two prints have nothing to do with each other except that I love them both.
With this second tote I fused a medium to heavy weight interfacing to the fabrics and I like the sturdier body I get with it.
Here next I had gone to what was called and Junk & Art Market. It is a junk and antiques store mixed with some crafty art items. On this day they added some outdoor craft vendors.
But this vintage sewing machine find obviously sits outside all year round.
Wouldn’t that be a great outdoor decoration at a quilt shop or even if you have a separate studio she-shed in your backyard. I did not ask the price and it also was weathered...faded away from sunshine.
This rusting process would have to already be started for me. I could NEVER set out in the yard a rather decent condition machine to become weather worn over time. Many would say what an awful thing to do, but since it’s done and there’s no changing it, I think it has it’s coolness as an outdoor decoration.
