Vintage fabrics projects

I like vintage fabrics...

...I've some old matelas toiles, hemp scraps, old monogrammed ribbons, monograms from old grain sacks...

...and because I like wasting nothing...

...I made these two hemp sacks for LC from old hemp...

...they're usable for plants, bread, toilette products or anything else!
Next sewing projects with the matelas toile!
A nice and sunny week end to you!
