Paris Market Bag

This is where thrifting meets sewing & a fabric transfer...

Today I found a like-new, beautiful bag made from straw for $2.99!

Add to that a piece of great curtain fabric I scored at the thrift store a few weeks ago...

I measured the fabric to line the inside of the bag then sewed the sides and the bottom of the fabric together.

I made a base from cardboard and covered it with fabric...

The base goes in the bottom of the bag for stability...

I hot glued the top edge of the lining onto the bag...

Next I used Citrasolv to transfer the design for the front of the bag. 

I used spray adhesive, hand stitched it to the bag, then frayed the edges.

I turned this $2.99 thrift store find into a Parisian work of art that I can't wait to use!
