Carrie S.

Gorgeous refashion!


Absolutely gorgeous!!! What more could I say!!!

Tanya Whelan

Thanks girls! and I love that phrase "refashion" you used Carrie. Feels so good to take something that had a prior life and is now sorta of unloved and give it new life.


How fabulous does the bag look. You did a fantastic job reupholstering it, and the fabric is so pretty too.


You did a beautiful job - now I want one too!


That sure turned out nice!


What a great way to recycle! It turned out so pretty, that is a really great project! I can't wait until my fabric order arrives now! xo, suzy


It looks adorable. You've done a fabulous job! Can't wait to see all the other barefoot rose projects.


What a transformation! Love it!


I love it.....hmmmm I would like one of those too..... Love your blog, congrats!


how sweet!


I absolutley love the bag what a great idea I will have to give it a try.


Oooooooohhhh! This SO lovely - like a breath of fresh air - gorgeous!


So cute! Great idea! Did you sew the handles?

Tanya Whelan

Oh, Karla, totally forgot about that, you're right I did sew the handles. Just re-used the handles it came with and sewed the fabric over them.


Ohhhhh, that's so yummy! What a great project. I know I have a few of those vintage bags in my closet I can experiment on. Gotta love Goodwill! teehee. :oP
