Sewin', sewin', sewin'...

This has been a very productive week - I found some inspiration from a plastic envelope Gracie brought home from preschool a couple weeks ago. The shape of it seemed perfect - it did have a velcro closure (which can always be altered), and was made of... well, ... plastic. So, I do what I do... find other fabrics that need a new use!

Here's my take on that envelope, I don't know what to call them, like usual. But mine is filled with all my circular needles, tapestry needles and small scissors for knitting. I know, not everyone knits, but I know you can help me find a use for these.

This is the original... the one, I call "mine". It's made from a sweater sleeve, and vintage buttons from gentlemen's suits.



Here are a couple more, you get the idea... They measure 6" x 8".







I also found another way to use a vintage curtain, and some vintage bed sheets - here's my first take on making creative wall space.


I love it so much! I think I will keep my wool soakers in it above the changing table/dresser. But I do plan on making a LOT more, in different shapes and sizes.

Happy Crafting!
