My project list gets longer and longer, but I'm working through it (mostly) in order of need. Last week, I finished two very useful items: coasters and a clothespin holder.
I made the coasters out of an awesome but very small piece of woven fabric by cutting it to a little larger than the size I wanted and zig zag stitching about a quarter of an inch in from the edges. I pulled whatever strands were unattached and trimmed everything up, and now I have colorful, textured coasters and don't have to use cardboard any more. HOORAY!
(What happened to the earlier coasters? Felting is an adventure, and I was getting tired of not getting it quite right. That project is on hold for now, especially now that I don't need them any more.)
The clothespin holder was originally a sleeve of Fix's that I upcycled* into a pouch with a little wrist strap. I trimmed it down and sewed up the bottom while leaving the cuff open. Useful.
*Is it just me, or is "upcycled" a really dumb word?
