Recycled Sewing

One of the things I love about being able to sew is that everything has potential. 

This proves a problem when I’m shopping though as I can visualise making all sorts out of everything and anything. 

However sometimes I do actually get round to making these things (and sometimes not, hence the enormous pile of fabric in my cupboard but that’s a whole other post!).

This was one of those times.
I bought this ‘fabric’ in the form of a duvet in a charity shop. 

I loved the rose print.

I’ve already made a couple of bags from it and this week I made an apron for a friend of mine. 

For the ties on I used bits of ribbon – you can just about see the pink organza in this pic.    I love how it came out as I didn’t have a pattern! 
Hope you’re all having a good weekend!

Anyone else doing some recycled sewing??

    That is a great apron and a clever way to use up old duvets.
