Is it a bird is it a plane... no it's a Vintage Doily Transformer Cushion Bag! (huh?)...
It all started with a burlap bag, to which I added a vintage doily I recently picked up at a fab little vintage fabric store. I wish I could take credit for the crochet but my crochet skills are basic at best. I imagine this one was made with love by someones Nana :)
I decided to snap an Instagram pic of my new tote (I'm a massive fan of bags, totes and baskets of all kinds). When I looked at the pic of my new tote, propped on a chair it looked like a pretty cute lil cushion (I'm a massive fan of cushions too!).
It was instant love, but I was torn... bag verses cushion??
Arrghhh I'm not so good in the decisions department. Then I started to think why can't I have my cake and eat it too... or as the case may be, have my cushion and tote it too ;)
I have boys, they have a tonne of boys stuff including Transformers; so it was high time for this mummy have her own Transformer! and so became... my Vintage Doily Transformer Cushion Bag!
|Handles tucked in = instant cushion|
I'm busy working towards going to market in a few months time, bags and cushions are on my 'to make list'.
Hope you're having a Happy Tuesday lovelies!
What do you think, are you a bag or cushion girl?
And for some fun I'm linking up to these fab parties... :)
