At a car boot sale last weekend I managed to pick up an old circular tablecloth with brown and orange print and fringing- very Abigail's Party  Smiley

It was only 3' across or so, so I just chopped it in half to make a bag. I kept the rounded bottom, and gathered the top down to around 15".



The wooden handle was a charity shop find, and I think it really makes the bag



The lining is cream, as any more pattern would have made my eyes fall off  Grin



This is the first project I've posted here, so I'd love to know what you think.

very cute.  i agree about the handle, adds a little more vintagey feel to an already vintage fabric.  i would definitely carry that bag around Grin

If you still have the other half of the tablecloth you could use it for a panel in a plain skirt  Smiley

The other half had a 30 year old coffee stain, hence the 50p price  Grin

I think it's absolutely fabulous!  I love brown and orange together (my latest fav color combo) and you did fantastic work in turning it into a very cool bag!  Love it!!
