so last week when I saw this little beauty for $4, I snapped it up.
I have been seeing pictures of things made with old canvases that so appealed to me - such as covered chairs and journals, and lots of bags.
|This is the work of Leslie Oschmann - www.swarmhome.com|
|A journal cover by Swarm|

I got to work yesterday to make my own version of a painted canvas bag, using some material from my stash for lining, and an old woven leather belt that never sees the light of day for the handles.
I love how it turned out! It combines two of my loves - art and upcycling.
I'm not sure how well it will wear, but when it has finished being a bag, it will become a book cover.
Thanks for visiting.
