A Jewel


A Jewel
Originally uploaded by misseskwittys
I was going through a bag of old hankies at my fav second hand shop and *gasped* when I spotted this tattered beauty! Her loveliness shone through her stains and tattered edges and I just had to bring her home and try and revive her to her former beauty. I was able to remove or fade out her stains and carefully trimmed the tattered edges and added some interfacing to strengthen her frail fabric---and turned her into a lovely and usable bag. New life. I think she is pleased. Available HERE.
