Hippie Conversion

While making my first tote bag, my mind started to drift to my next creation. My auntie gave me two suede pillowcases that I can convert into a tote bag. As my mind starts racing to the finish line, I decided that I’m going to use the blocking technique that’s very popular now, and in the 80’s.  Although, I had a little help with this decision from the pillowcase. No, I’m not crazy, but the fabric spoke to me.

I  think a matching clutch or zipper top wristlet is in order since the zippers are already there.  I would hate to get rid of them, and the recycling capabilities are endless!  There are some small details that I need to workout, but the weekend project is a go!  Join the challenge.
