A tale of ticking..

A piece of vintage ticking that is. While I was out thrifting when my very best friend Sarissa for my birthday we came across a little bit of vintage fabric. One of the pieces was this ticking, and I could only tell it was the vintage stuff over what I can buy new in the store by the width of the fabric.

So I brought it home with me, gave it a good wash and finally was able to work with it over the past 2 days.

I was able to get 4 totes out of the piece, and in keeping with the new direction I'm taking my etsy shop, each one is a different piece of art.

A few of these will find their way into the etsy shop, although the red white and blue is for an upcoming auction I am taking part in.
