Embellished Vest with vintage doily's


Grain sacks and vintage cloth calenders embellish these reusable shopping bags

This is a great idea for an old military bag.
I call this one my "flea market" bag.
It's got lots of pockets for everything I'd need when spending a day at the flea market.
I added fabric, and various found objects to dress it up.

I saw this great purse at the flea market. It's made from cowboy boots.

This picture was taken at an antique store in Jefferson Texas. it's an old brownie camera turned into a purse, What a cute idea.

Greenbean workshop from the HGTV board contributes this project, a Paul Mccartney bag she made from a T-shirt

I was able to lengthen these jeans as well as add some interest to them
by adding Vintage or Scrap fabric. I've embellished the one on the left with
a covered button and the ones on the right with old escutcheon plates.


Just a few of the many re-purposed jewelry projects out there

Various Found Objects make up these unique necklaces

Broken china pieces, are made into pendants by soldering around the edges.
Below are 2 tea cup handles, soldered together to make a great heart pendant.

Old Silverware makes a great bracelet

Found object dangle from the pendant above
and I've sandwiched some "junk" between 2 laboratory slides for the pendant below.

More old silverware makes these Angel Pins

These Pins were made from old hinges, and found objects.

All of these earrings were made from various "junk" found objects.

More ideas from Greenbean Workshop

Wristcuff was made from an old man jacket and an old super lacey dress. I'll let the Cassette necklace speak for itself. Thanks greenbean for the great projects
