I loved my grandmother's style and treasure the jewelry and clothing I inherited from her.
The only problem is that she was petite. And I am not. So while I wear the jewelry a lot. I don't wear much of the clothing. Solution? Re-purposing.
Shelli of VintageChase created the above bag using a favorite leather jacket of my Gram's. And I love it. She asked a lot of questions so she could create a bag really suited for me and even stitched my Gram's name into the interior of the bag.
I think my Gram would like it.
