These Days We Say "Repurposed"~~~~~~~~~~~
But, I can remember my grandma abiding by this little verse:
Make it Last
Wear it Out
Use it Up
Or Do Without
So, she would love these little bags that I have made from a book of fabric scraps that I got awhile back with several books of wallpaper. Some I left with their pinked edges showing. Some have my favorite common white string hand stitched through the tops as a drawstring. Some have ribbon. And some are just made as foldover pieces with a flap to keep things in. Perhaps to use as a little gift bag. I even made a little pillow out of one, with buttons added, of course!
Taking these to Indiana to give to all the ladies that come to a little tea party we are having. Kinda like taking my grandma along with me :)
I just love making things from something that would be just thrown away. What can you make today?
