I’ve started making some things for my shop again. There is some thrifted fabric in my stash that needs to be repurposed before I can go garage sailing again this year. I used a little bit of this tablecloth to make a small sock knitting basket a few years ago. Now I’ve gone in the opposite direction and made a big beach bag tote.
When I washed the table cloth, it lost a lot of the canvas-like stiffness that I liked, so I had to line it with something sturdy. I chose some heavy duty upholstery fabric to do the job.
I also tried something a little different with the gusset and added these vintage buttons on the side. Aren’t they cute? I love them!
I’ve got the rest of this tablecloth cut and ready for more totes. Not sure if I am going to make something different or make more of the same.
What do you think?
