Bags and bags of up-cycling...

Well it was a wet Sunday.What's to do?Cosy up in the sewing room..
Take an old, felted woolly jumper, an faded tea towel, a pair of curtains(car boot bargain) a selection of needlecord dresses also from car boot collection,ribbon,buttons and a little bit of crochet and you have some really cheap and cheerful  not to mention unique Christmas presents.Jules and I had a lot of fun making these bags and feel pleased to be making pretty rubbish at very little cost......a splendid way to while away a rainy day.We also rediscovered our love of sherry which we love to drink at this time of the year..

The jumper and the tea towel and a lovely crocheted flower...

Curtains made from this gorgeous 1950's barkcloth.I really love this.... a few vintage buttons and the green ribbon was used as a cakeband last Christmas.
A patchwork of needlecord clothes and lots of little bits,ric-rac,lace,crochet....
Not to be out done Mum has been making gorgeous hats for gorgeous babies....

It was a great Sunday,Hope yours was good too......
