Recylcing for a New Bag

>> Saturday, October 30, 2010

Reading one of my old friend's blog the other day, BUP, I was inspired by the post about CourtneyCourtney, a local Philly children's clothing designer who recycles clothing into new modern day super cute outfits of kids. Her outfits and post inspired me to upcycle a few of the items in my to be repaired stash into a new bag for myself. It's a little kitchey and little retro and probably a little to young looking for this 30 year old but I was pretty proud of my make shift bag. The items used were 1-old wool scarf and 2- old plaid shirts. The pattern was self made design it as you go pattern. So no really pattern at all. Here's a photo of the end result. And BTW my friend Bernadette is an excellent photographer if you're near the Philly area definitely give her call.


Lone Star Quilt Finished.

>> Sunday, October 17, 2010

Another accomplishment this weekend... This one motivated by my church's, Messiah Lutheran, upcoming fund raiser for Lunches for Learning. Each year our church holds an annual Handmade Market where crafts made by members of the church and community are donated for sale. The proceeds from the Handmade Market will be used to support Lunches for Learning which provides daily lunches for elementary school children in the rural areas of Honduras.

For the fundraiser I am donating not only the wooden pendants I made this weekend but my Lone Star Quilt I finished today. I hope it brings forth a good donation for the cause.

This year we plan on make Christmas bauble candle holders, stamped coasters, decorative jar ornaments and  a version of scrabble tile pendants inspired by Becky Ann Designs. So to get in the mood I test drove one of the crafts today. Using blank wood squares, scrapbook paper and plenty of mod podge I manged to create the following...... For a full tutorial on how to make your own visit Make & Takes. Only wish I could have found some diamond glaze to give it that glass top look.
