rag quilted purse

This is my first attempt at a rag quilted purse....

It was made from a charm pack...but i had to add the solid brown
because i needed a few more squares.

I know now what I think I want to do differently on my next one.

Re Cycle Re purpose tshirt

Had this tshirt for a while my son out grew it and I didn't want to part with it as I just new it had to have some use again. This is what I came up with. There was a stain on it so I added a rosette made from the same material.

Little Boy's Apron....

Made a little apron for my nephew. Sure hope it fits. Might have to do some adjustments. Used a pocket from a pair of jeans, and added two cute buttons.

scrap buster... flannel scarf.

Using up some scraps! The material for the comfy flannel reversable scarf came from leftover material from my pajama pants. Will be nice for an extra scarf this winter.

2 new pincushions I made... let me know what you think?

The red one bottom came from a thrift store it called to me and said make me into a pincushion and so i did lol.........

The other one I had sitting empty for a while and since I was in a pincushion mood well the rest is history.

Another fun project.

My very first Mug rug!

Totally simple and what a great gift idea too!

Made from scraps and recycled material.


This was a lot of fun to make.

I really like chunky bracelets.

And love black and white.

what do you think?

A view of the shorts, great pattern on the material although I learned next time to use a different material so it has a little bit of stretch in it.

My very first Pair of shorts! WOW were these a challenge. Lots of mistakes but for my first pair I dont care I'm very proud of myself. No pattern. These will be great to lounge in.

Spiral Rope larger seed beeds... "Summer splash"

Spiral Rope using 11s seed beads. I call it sea breeze.

11s were a bit challenging.

Table Runner for mom

I made this spring/summer table runner for my mom in colors she likes. It's hand quilted. It got a bit bunchy on me and my hand quilting needs work.
