I just SO LOVE IT when a friend rings you up and says 'hey could you make this for me?'
In this case, twas a 'draught excluder' (which I did have to google to find out exactly what that was eep!)
I started off recycling the calico squares we use on repeat at sewing school and I patched them together to make skinny tubes (draught excluder now turned into 2, plus an extra for ..well...extra). I then filled them with rice (thanks Jen & MC for the sack).
I then sewed together the outer inner tube with more calico scraps, which I then filled up with...more calico scraps (they're nice and heavy)- SCRAPTASTIC YA!
I used ye ol faithful grey woolly blankets, and a cosy off cut from the bottom of my scarf...I nipped it off as soon as my friend said she liked orange & blanket stitched the joins with blue as navy blue was her second colour in mind.
It is so very nice to make for friends, not just for gifts as I always do, but for when they ask and challenge me into making new things, I am stoked they are dipping in to my creative skills!
This weeks creative space was pretty busy with a mountain of things (sorry mum & mums friends the bags are all nearly done!)....but this is the only thing finished haha!
Oh and while we are on spaces, crumbs Trinity St Loft has just got err hip!?
A new Facebook page even - with oodles of pictures of all recycled stuff.
Head on over here if you like, then like it if you like :)
Happy Thursday you lot!
Time to try shake this near cold. hmph!
