For my nursing pillow I made a new cover from to unused bedsheets from a second hand shop. The pictures shows each side.I ripped out the zip from the old cover and reused it.
The benefit of using two different fabric was that I didn’t have to worry about matching up stripes.
This fabric is some I bought in a second hand shop. I was some cut off from a curtain, hence the bleached lines.
I made two bags, which I used for gym and craft projects.
This bag is made entire out of fabric samples, which is why the colours go so well together.
Earlier I had made another bag from the same pattern, but it was worn down as I used the bag for work, carrying around books for teaching.
I used this pattern from warehouse fabric. The only alteration is that I arranged the pleats different for match up with the stripes.
Years ago I made a toiletry bag for myself using a pattern I created by copying an existing bag.
This Christmas I made one for my boyfriend as well using fabric samples and zippers from my stash.
Inside are a number of pockets in addition to the outside ones.
These bracelets are made from some of the many zippers I got for free.
A necklace made from an old tank top, cut to narrow strips.
This baby blanket is made from craps. Most of them come from fabric I used for a round blanket to put under the christmas tree.
Inside is a cheap blanket from a second hand store.
