Threads that bind us together. Last weekend, Mr. Cottage treated me to a trip to a few craft and thrift stores. Honestly it isn’t an easy undertaking and I’m really lucky that he is so patient with me. New embroidery thread. The colors make me swoon. I always lose the color codes, and end up …
I’ve finished a few sewing projects.
Holiday stockings, all made with recycled material.
Some of the material is really old, vintage and some new, like the boho gypsy stocking was a skirt that I purchased at a thrift store and took apart.
When I purchased my first sewing machine last year, the first thing I wanted to make were stockings.
Well, that didn’t happen. A year later, and few false starts I’m on my way.
The body of this one was made using vintage fabric, I’ve had for many years. That piece of fabric on the cuff is new. It is a left-over scrap from a chair I am reupholstering.
What projects are you working on?
See you later, Bye!
