Our little Flickr group scrap-happy projects is growing (slowly!) It's fun to see what people are doing with their wee scraps! There's a whole lot of new fabric flowers, purses, quilting projects, and even some key-rings made from little scraps.
Arlo's been staying with his grandparents for a couple of days so I've gotten some extra sewing done lately, including this little purse which uses up yet more scraps of my favourite fabrics:
I made it from some striped denim, left over from some boys' pants, and lined it with some reproduction pink and brown floral print. I intend to sew some velcro or a snap-fastener on so it's a bit more practical! And, umm, that was my first time trying blanket stitch. And yes, I know I need a lot more practice... I am quite embarassed by my lack of embroidery skills. I guess I'll be making many more of these to improve them!
And where did I get the idea from? Mollychicken, of course! Can you tell I intend to make my way through that entire tutorial list of hers?
They're super quick and easy to make (especially if you can blanket stitch...) have fun!
