I’ve been doing a little sewing here at Happy Acres the past couple of weeks. I recycled some of my old material from my quilting days for these projects.
We’ve been in dire need of some new potholders since the ones we bought on our Honeymoon in Hawaii are pretty sad looking. I had this cute cat material that I used for something way back when. I thought it would make cute bright potholders. For the inside I cut up an old towel and the backing were some of Dave’s jeans. Yes, he gave me permission!!
Don’t look too close at the workmanship! It’s been a long time. I also want to make some placemats but they will have to wait.
Lynn at Wood Ridge posted about fabric bags a while back and I kept thinking that I needed to make some of those drawstring bags for our veggies and bread. If you need a video on how to make an easy drawstring bag, check out this video.
Lastly, I made a pillowcase in a class at Joann’s last month. The class was a reintroduction to sewing which I felt I really needed. I was the only one in the class who had an old machine. I bought mine used over 25 years ago. While in class, one of the woman asked everyone to quit sewing so they could hear my old Elna purr!
Well, gotta get back to Elna. Hope you are creating during these cold days.
