~~~~~Texas Size for a Texas Girl~~~~~~

Literally months ago my friend, Barbie, brought me this big bag.
It is a thick burlap with a crochet cover and drawstring handle.
In itself it was nothing I thought I could use.....much less actually carry myself.
However, with the lace weaving technique I am currently using,
I figured I would give it a "go" with all my scrap pieces of vintage laces.
I love the way the bag turned out, even though it took forever.
It's Texas size, but after all, I am a Texas girl.
It is great for shopping trips because it will hold everything.
You can get a better idea as to the actual design of the bag with it laying flat,
And also see the weaving a little better.


It uses all of your scrap laces as you can just tie them end to end if you don't
Have a long enough piece.


Add a big organza rose, and it's done.






This technique was accepted by Somerset Publications and
Is Supposed to be Featured in the Spring issue .

Have a great day and create something...
It frees the soul!
