surprise! it's a bag.
Going through my Nonna's scraps today, I came across something half-assembled. I'm still not sure if it was meant to be a bag, or a pillowcase, or a practice of some sort. Also in the scraps was what looks like a matching narrow curtain panel. Anyways, I adore anything that was my grandmother's so even though it's not quite my style, it became a quick summer bag (although I guess the fabric is pretty cool).
I lined it with a simple, neutral linen and added a thick, short strap cut from a strip of the "curtain." I initially got excited when I thought it was something my grandmother made, but the sewing was a little wild so I wonder now if this was something my mom or my aunt made while learning to sew. Mom? What do you think? [Mom: You can click on " __ Comments" below and respond if you want. Or call me ;)]
