The Becky Bag

My very generous and thoughtful friend sent me an old skirt of hers in the hopes that I could repurpose the lovely fabric. I decided to make a tote and I think it turned out pretty darn cute. I hope I didn't let you down Becky!



Here's what's left of the skirt.

  5. That is so cute! I love the pleat in the front. And you have enough fabric leftover to make a matching wallet or clutch!
