Reusing, upcycled and recycled... Part 1

...some popular words now a days although I am not exactly sure what the exact definition of each word is...but... I like it! ;-)
As I always try to use what I have when creating, I was happy to get some scrap pieces of fabric from a seamstress. Some of it is really small pieces but some are of pretty good size. I decided to try something new to create and this is what I came up with:

My Shabby Chic tote bag I call "Cottage by the Ocean"
with romantic fabric roses and small pieces of shells.




And with the scrap pieces I made some 




Part 2 coming up....cool dress made with my husbands old t-shirts....
