More Sewing

It’s a flu season and I have been very sick for almost ten days! But now that I’m feeling better, I can show you what I have done before and after the flu. πŸ™‚ It all started with yet another cleaning adventure, this time it was the bedroom in which I “found” bed sheets and clothes that were no longer in use. But I don’t throw away things easily, as you know by now. If something can be recycled or reused, it’s going into the studio to be dealt with! πŸ™‚ That means my studio is always a mess, but we are all here used to that. Even the guests don’t pay attention to that anymore.

Anyway, Meda has a new quilt!

V. 003

It’s a jelly roll kind of quilt made with old linens and clothes.

And I have new bags! Denim skirt and plaid pants turned into this:

V. 005

This one is made with my handwoven fabric and a scrappy heart I made a long time ago. Even the tiniest pieces of fabric can be used to make beautiful things.

V. 006Β That’s a pocket on the front. πŸ™‚

V. 009

There is a pocket on the back too! The handles are from an old leather bag.

V. 010

And a summer bag made with old tees and a beautiful belt that my aunt gave me. She wore that belt when she was a young girl. And now I can wear it too, although not around my waist,lol!

Have a great time everyone!
