Twice recycled, Thrice used

From curtains, to pillow covers, to three pocket tote

From curtains, to pillow covers, to three pocket tote

I chose this fabric with watercolor hues for curtains.  Alas, the curtains were replaced with blinds.  Shortly afterwards, I had the opportunity to recycle curtains in to pillow covers for screened porch seating.  Now that the seating is being reupholstered, the pillows will have new fabric.  I was about to THROW AWAY these covers when I realized sewing them together and adding a handle would make a respectable three pocket tote.  (Three pockets are made when the pillow backs are intact and sewn together with the fronts.)  DONE!
