Dad's Old Drop Cloth

Before my father suffered from a major stroke one year ago, he was self employed as a house painter. He painted all over our hometown and everyone knew him. I spent many summers helping him paint and learning what hard work was all about. My dad says he's retired from painting and focusing on getting stronger and so I thought I would give his old drop cloths new life!  A quick cut and sew with leather straps and it's the perfect tote. I had to create a mini wallet to go with it.

May my father's house painting legacy live on! (He thinks I'm crazy by the way).
