Orange You Glad...?

After using up just about every scrap of vintage patchwork in my previous projects, I wondered if i could create my own...

I went through my stash and pulled out anything with a 70's orange/lime vibe. I was in high school during the 70's and this combination always makes me smile.

I cut and pieced 4.5-inch squares and created this bag. There are dishtowels, tablecloths and vintage fabrics all in the mix.

The carrots are crewel embroidery.

Here is the back...because everything is improved when you add a rooster.

I had enough patches to create a couple of handbags as well.

Vintage enamel daisy pins decorate the flaps.

What do you think?
