Day #37 - Reuse/Recycle/Repurpose Challenge, Part 4

Good morning!
Believe it or not, I STILL have some pieces left to work with!! 

For starters, I did a bit of re-construction on the needle holder and I like it much better.  I trimmed off about 3/8" one end and sewed a piece of black over it.  Snipped off the ribbon on the other end and added a snap to close it.  Much easier to use, much tidier!

Then, I had a strip that still had the fringe, so... some of that gorgeous coordinating fabric and viola ~ a bookmark!  A girl can never have too many of those!

The last large piece became a glasses case!  It maybe too late to save the pair that float around in my purse, but I can PRETEND that it's a great idea ~ you know, no further scratches?  I trimmed up the last large piece of the scarf, backed it with iron on interfacing and found a coordinating fabric (the gorgeous blue is gone, sigh...).   I sewed a binding piece along the whole top edge and then stitched it on the machine.  The, I took a second piece of binding, sewed it on (right sides together), creating a corner at the bottom, and then handstitched it when that was done.  I am doing more and more handstitching...scary!  Lol!

Tomorrow will end this repurposing challenge and I am down to scraps! Bet you wonder what I've got up my sleeve? Muahaha!

Hmmm...the pieces are getting pretty small....

I hope everyone has a marvelous day!
Quilty hugs,
