may giveaway day
I’m participating in Sew, Mama, Sew’s May Giveaway Day. Remember that beautiful tablecloth I was going to make into tote bags? Here’s the first one!

The top has a slight curve because the tablecloth is round. I love how the trim fabric contrasts with the floral print. The lace tape really pulls it together!

I’ll be making three more for my etsy shop, but I’m giving this one away! I’ll even ship internationally.

    I think your selection of vintage gingham fabric to enhance the rose/muted beige tablecloth material was an original concept, and the long rectangular shape of the bag is also very appealing. Great choices in both fabric selection and design!
