I think I have written before about my length of ultrasuede. It was a present to my mother many years ago from my father. I think that it cost $33/yd then, and he got her three yards. This was a very extravagant present, and she was too intimidated to ever cut into it. So the years passed, and now the fabric has been handed down to me. The fabric still looks terrific, the original thickness in a tan/cream color. I have been wondering what to do with it, since I think it has been sitting around unused for close to, well, a whole lot of years, so it is time to be used. I don’t want to make a garment that will go out of style, and since I like making handbags, I got the idea to make bags for my sisters and for me, and if there are leftovers, I can make small bags for the granddaughters and sister-in-laws. That way they would all have something that was special to my mom.
I am still thinking over this idea, but so far I really like it.
