This week has been half term, so not quite as much sewing as usual:)

I seem to have started projects, rather than finishing anything!!

Upcycled jacket bag ideas

This is the start of a new design for upcycled jacket bags. The idea is to use the higher back of the jacket as a fold over piece for the front of the bag, all cut as one piece.


However I have lost my mojo with it… the lining was an easy choice with a former duvet cover but I just have not resolved the strap/handle. The sleeves are really worn and not up to the task, the denim I have stashed is just the wrong shade, and the webbing I bought as an alternative is also the wrong shade.. still I have the accessories from a former bag for attaching the strap (a grand 50p).

  Shirt Stash

Next up a successful start on the quilt for my daughter… cut off all seams from the shirts so I now a neat pile of flat and washed fabric ready for sewing:) A good friend kindly helped whilst the children played:)

Button stashAs you can see we did not quite get as far as rescuing all the buttons, once I have found my seam ripper I am sure it is a quick job.


I did manage to finish an application for a scholarship for an on-line photography course “Photocraft”- there is still time to apply but you will need to be quick as the deadline is TODAY.

I hope you have had a creative week, as usual I am popping by Handmade Harbour  to see what other people have been creating:)
