Melbourne City tote out of old tablecloth





















I came across a tablecloth in a local op shop, it was in great condition, with my favourite City Melbourne and all its lovely spots to visit. With a few cuts and joins I turned it into a tote bag, lined it, added a couple of pockets, put on some red strapping for handles and just love it.

  6. Hi Jude, thanks for your lovely comments on my blog, it's nice to 'meet' you! I love the bag you made, what a great way of re-using an old tablecloth, I was in my local charity shop recently, but no fantastic finds like this! The photo of your grandson is adorable, did you make the quilts on his bed? :) x
