The Downton Abbey Tote Bag (and more)

KJ has turned an unwanted needlepoint piece into a clever tote bag, complete with a Downton Abby theme.

With the help of Google, I also found a needlepoint picture turned into a smashing pillow.

Not that handy with a needle yourself?  Natasha's will turn those old needlepoint belts into key fobs.

FrenchDecoChic makes very nice totes from older needlepoint pieces.

So what's in your attic and what do you plan to do with it?
