UFOs # 2 - The Bonnet Project

bonnets and bags by Karen Vallerius

Pleased to report I am steadily working my way through my stash of textiles saved for upcycling and producing bonnets and bags which are destined for local charity shops in locations with historical costume events later in the year.  The bonnet and bag above are upcycled from a tablecloth with a small applique cut from a traycloth.

The Mulhouse archival textile above has been both a tablecloth and door curtain in its time!  I have tied a floppy silk scarf as a large bow reminiscent of Georgian style bonnets.

And above I managed to eke out some fragments cut from an apron (already upcycled into other projects) into this bonnet.

More coming soon.
