Recylcing was on my mind today when I was in the sewing room! I have had this little ham salad can sitting there staring at me, wanting to be something besides empty! I took a scrap of fabrci and wrapped it. Then rick rack for covering the edges. I cut cardstock to fit the top, covered it with scrap minkee fabric and stuffed it with polyfil! No cost and using up my scraps and now I have a pincushion and small storage container!! I had to add a couple of crochet motifs that I cut out from a lace band that was in the drawer!
I found this lovely lace at the GoodWill on Thurs. It was attached to a boring navy jacket. Now that it has been removed, it can be cut into smaller pieces. It is a cream or light gold color and will be great on CQ.
Next up the wrist warmers that I started last night. Not very exciting looking I agree. They are my favorite color, warm, comfy, and EASY!! Who doesn't love easy?? I plan to add some cream yarn to kind of jazz them up when I have the other one done!! Made from left over yarn, so no current cost!! Might have to make more!I
Another flower made from the left overs from the minkee throw. Don't ya love the color?? I have green velvet leaves that I put with it. Another freebie project for the day!!
Last but not least is my sewing buddy! For some reason he decided to nap on this pillow while I played at the table. He is DD's but has been in our care for the majority of the past year. It will really be tough to move out and leave him behind in a few months. Can't remember being without a pet in many years.
My blog is a place for me to journal, add things I have made, connect with other bloggers, sewers, CQers, doll makers.
