upcycling Spring…

A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of visiting a local company called Taylor Made Custom Products. Innovators in the awning business since 1908, their current staff has been at it for over 33 years. The team there was hard at work sewing up awnings. I was very lucky to come away with some remnants to work with. There are not many scraps left as they tend to use up what they have. What a treat to see local production happening and then share in it myself:-) The elegant summer tote pictured above is my first project using these upcycled materials (a friend provided my with some amazing leather remnants). This tote is for sale on my Etsy Bale and Twine shop. The weather continues to make the outdoors bloom. Our blueberries and strawberries are coming. Spring marchs on…enjoy…
