Upcykling embroidery

I have a collection of old embroidered pieces, which I delve into once in a while for inspiration or when I am looking for something for a specific project. I don’t ususally have problems cutting into unfinished tapestries or stained table cloths. These two identical chair seats, however, have escaped my scissors on many an occasion. I have found them too pretty to cut into and when going through my stash recently, I realised that they were the perfect shape for a bag. And please note, that the wrong side is nearly as neat as the right – something I cannot admit to in my work. A quick look through my cotton pieces revealed a purple batik dyed table cloth – a relic from the seventies – that could be used for the lining. The wooden handles, bought from a charity shop, have been hanging on a hook in my work room for at least 25 years, and amazingly, fit the seat covers perfectly.
