wildwood inspired library tote

an old corduroy dress, up-cycled into a roomy 
wildwood inspired library tote.
lined with a sturdy cotton, 
fitted with a pocket for your library card
(in the story, a murder of crows flies away with prue's baby brother!) 
and handles that will fit over your shoulders,
this tote is listed over at the family shop,
now i am off to sew some more!

(Oh my goodness, it sold already!)


  1. Perfect combination of thrift, art, upcycling, and usefulness. Love the forest colors. Nice.

  2. I've never read Wildwood . . . can you give me an idea of when might be a good age to read it with the kids? I know it's one of y'all's favorites.

  3. yay! a library tote! i LOVE my library and will definitely add "wildwood" to my lists of books to be read. the tote is really nice, especially the crows...i've always been a sucker for socks and pockets.
    have a great day and happy sewing. tqoe

  4. I have not read the book, but love the bag!

  5. That's a great tote bag!
    Love it!
