The top half is a repurposed Tommy Hilfiger bed sheet, the bottom half is made from vintage curtains.  I backed the whole thing with some quilt batting, but the quilting is pretty loose... no real pattern, just vertical stripes that cant be seen well in photos.
Felted wool sweater cut into circles to make flowers. Adorned with vintage buttons, and some vintage and repurposed leaves.
Interior is a vintage pillowcase. The part I had to cut off became pockets trimmed with vintage ric-rac and some bias tape.
the bag and a matching changing pad made from a thrifted towel. This set was a gift for a friends baby girl.

My girlfriend had her first little girl, so I had to create something TOTALLY pink and girlie.  It's made from vintage fabric (curtains) and repurposed, thrifted bed linens. The decorations are felted wool and vintage buttons, with a few bits of vintage and repurposed fabrics thrown in for good measure. It's lined with a vintage pillowcase and has three pockets for holding binkies and bottles and such.
