Vintage and upcycling at its best

I have spent a very enjoyable afternoon rummaging through my 'must do something with these sometime soon' stash of fabrics and items. I came across a skirt I rescued that my daughter was throwing away (too tight - me thinks too many take away suppers) and some red wool fabric that was left over from another project and thought umm these will go nicely together so ran up a lovely tote 'as we crafters often do' without a pattern just of the top of my head. I will be taking it on its first outing… Continue

Found time to sew, and.......!!!!

Well, I found time to sew a little yesterday, though the baby was crawling all over me! I was able to make a lining and interface it. It is for a bag that I am making. I bought lots of pretty FQ's, and match or not, I used strips of some of them. The pattern is a Kwik Sew. It's not hard at all, and I have the lining pinned in. Now, just finding time to actually sew it in? Also got out 3 burpies that I am gonna embroider a baby's name on for a cousin (baby due next month). Just… Continue

The last piece of the fabric

....of this fabric I brought back from Japan finally changed its shape. For 2 years I didn't touch this fabric because I loved it too much to cut into pieces. It was already just a strip.

When I came back from Japan, my good friend visited me ans ask what I found over there. So I showed her the fabrics I and she loved this one. The one I loved but couldn't afford to buy more than 1 meter. This material was from a designer's collection and the price was…

Selvage Quilt

Lovely, Great! I am a frugal saver and this is the ultimate! I have a basket full of selvages. Until now I have used them to pull electrical cords from the back of cupboards to hanging flower baskets under the trees(weight down one end and throw over high limbs) Your quilt is a much prettier way use tem.
