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....|
