Work in progress

For this purse I am using fabrics that used to belong to my grandmother and my auntie. Last week when I visited my auntie she gave me a bag full of the most varied bits of leftover fabrics, each with a story to tell..."this one I used to make a dress for your cousin and this one a pair of pants for when she was little...". On average these fabrics have to be at least 30 years old, making them vintage by definition....the flower came from our old place, I found it when we recently renovated... among my mum´s bits and pieces of sewing things. There is no moral... just memories which will soon belong to someone else who will never know.
