That’s me! A Crafty Old Bag! Nothing pleases me more than making something useful, decorative and aesthetically pleasing too, especially when the cost is minimal.
Whilst sorting through the huge selection of shoppers and tote-bags hanging on the back of the store door I came across this strong canvas bag with a design printed on it - perfect! I covered the design with iron-on vilene and stitched the picture in place.
The result is a lovely new craft bag which will keep my current project clean whilst I tote it around the place. I love it, and when it hangs on the cupboard door in my sewing room it’s decorative too.
The tapestry is based on the Mary Cassatt painting, 'Young Mother Sewing’. Mary Stevenson Cassatt (1844-19260) was an American Impressionist painter and printmaker who often had ‘Mother and Child’ studies as her subjects. She never married, and had no children of her own, but spent time with her sister’s children. Many of her works depict the social and private lives of women and she was a strong supporter of women’s suffrage.
