Still destashing!

I can’t believe all of the felt I had accumulated!  A lot have sold but I’m still destashing, and kind of sad about what I could have made.  There were grand plans for needlefelted wools and felt combined into hats, mittens, brooches.  My least favorite part of the process was the actual sewing.  The shopping, planning, needlefelting and designing was the best!  I should get myself an elf..

 This one is ready to be sewn into a hat.

      

These were going to be trivets..

These are done and in my shop:  Scarves made from pants and a skirt..

 

I made a few last year with needlefelted cherries, and if I ever have a spare second, I’ll make more.  I’m keeping the wool pants and skirts, for now!

Politics

These caught my eye last night at the fabric store:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Political cotton fabric!

I snatched it up, listed some on Etsy, and my brain is spinning with all of things I can make with it. 

Any suggestions?

Today is the first day

of the rest of my blog!

Procrastination has had a hold on me for quite some time regarding the blog thing. I confess I have become addicted to reading quite a few in the past few weeks, so I’m throwing my hat into the blog ring (blring?).

My head has been filled with projects I NEED to make. I finally have time!

First up, a photo of my attempt to make a wristlet from completely recycled materials. Pants (including zipper) and upholstery samples were used. I’m not satisfied with the end product, but its a start. Those of you who know me are probably surprised that my first blog entry is of a sewn item, not knitted or digitally created! Oh what a three-dimensional crafter I am.

I wish I would have photographed the materials before I cut, but next time I will.  Here’s the finished product hanging on my favorite porch chair:
