Front of bag and bottom of blanket

This was my baby blanket. I turned it into a tote bag so I could use it once again. The blanket was a doll applique on pink gingham with a blue border and back. It had yellow squares on the corners with writing on it -- my name, birthday, name of the lady that made it, and date it was made.

I used the top of the doll for the front and the top of the blanket for the back. The long blue side panels became two handles. I used two yellow squares for pockets on the back, the one with the maker's name and the date it was made.

I'm entering the eco-chic category. Why should I win? I'm not sure. This bag isn't the prettiest I've made. The fabric was old, the filling bunched up, the applique coming off in parts...But it's the bag I've made that has made me the happiest. This blanket has been stored away for a very long time and it makes me happy to see it again. Repurposing beloved objects is a wonderful thing.
