    Great. I will no longer pass up pillow shams at the thrift stores. They can have a "new life".

    Great Great GREAT! I was really amazed that you saw that in the shams - and envious. It is usually two days AFTER I see something like that when the idea would bloom in my mind!

    The purse is lovely.

    Vicki - What a beautiful bag!!! You really have inspired me. A couple of years ago I bought a queen sized quilt with a lovely brown top and beige back at a super bargain. It cost much less than the fabrics, batting and custom quilting. The quilting was done in beige thread on top and brown on the bottom. It came with two pillow shams which I can't use. Now I know what to do with them.

    That is impressive - really you made a designer bag that would cost you big bucks if you purchased it retail - I love that you took the pillow shams and really made something very useful that is unique - bravo.

    Wow! You do have an artist's eye, and it is taking you far. The purse is beautiful, and very professional looking. I am sure you are very proud of your creation. Please show us more of your creations as the come.

    I would like to see your pillows when you have them finished.

    Kudos to you... I love to see upscaled items like this. Good encouragement for others to envision new life for otherwise useless items.

    I'm glad to know that other minds think like mine. I "see" bags/purses in all kinds of fabric items. The messenger bag is also one of my favorite patterns. You did a beautiful job.

    Recycling makes me very happy. But you have UP-cycled in a BIG way! These are great! Gotta start looking at pillow shams now at Goodwilll. Aiyiyi - what you women do to me.....
