Redos & Reuses ~ FUN Crochet and Sewing Creations!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Thursday!

Spring has sprung in my studio as I am creating crochet flowers and sewing fabric trash bags for cleaning up scraps as I work. :)

Several years ago I made Melanie a wool poncho and I asked her if I could give it a makeover for Spring!

She loves wildflowers so I made her these pretty lupine colored flowers to add a smile to her day!

I just love how it turned out!

For Valentine's Day, Melanie got me some wonderful ribbon with pugs on it!

I found the perfect project to use some of it today!

I needed a hanging basket to catch scraps of fabric, thread and yarn as I work so I pulled out a bread sack I found at Ikea the last time I was there and sewed two strands of ribbon to it with a weighted lavender and rice stuffed fabric sac to hang from any work table.

What a FUN & FUNctional project that worked up in just a few minutes.

I was so happy to be able to reuse my IKEA Bread Bag for this project because it is covered in neat sketches of tea cups in my favorite mustard color that I can now enjoy all of the time!

What FUN Spring projects are you planning or working on?

Please leave us a note and let us know!

We cannot wait to hear what you are up to!

You inspire us everyday!
