10 Pickled Pockets Clutches from Upcycled Upholstery Swatches. Limited Edition, One of a Kind.
You have to believe me when I say that screen-printing these 10 upholstery swatches made me smile. Not because it is of Pickle's silhouette, but of how well it turned out. Who am I kidding? It's Pickle!
I don't like leaving any waste scraps around, so each pouch (or clutch) is paired up with a contrasting band. Mixing them up was the difficult part, because the colours all work well together.
The Pickle image has, in my opinion, jazzed and modernised a 'blah' fabric, so I juxtaposed it with a warm floral tapestry on the other side. The warm colours worked.
Lining the interior is this coral woolly vintage fabric.
How do you like it?
And because I am a nerd who likes documenting her projects, here's photographic evidence of 'No Scraps Left Behind.'
What does Pickle say?
