The general approach around here is to use fabrics and materials already on hand, that wonderful found stuff, recycling and re-purposing every single chance we get and resisting the urge to buy anything new except, perhaps, thread and finishing nails.
Item Number One:
distressed & stenciled piece of furniture
|Miss Mustard Seed does beautiful work! This is hers, which I snagged off of Pinterest.|
Item Number Two:
full bib apron with ruffles & pleats, made from vintage cotton sheeting
My version will be for sale when it's done.
Unless I love it too much.
Which happens a lot.
Item Number Three:
wreath made from aged book pages
I'll finish this one tonight while watching movies with Handsome.
Item Number Four:
silly applique pillows using only scraps of course
Item Number Five:
scarf made from recycled tees
This one is intended for my sixteen year old daughter,
and I am using happy-memory shirts from her childhood.
So there we have it, five projects, each of which is underway and also has a recipient in mind. Happy scavenging!
