I mentioned previously that I had a lot of fleece. I was a sucker for sale fleece.
I used my Olfa to scallop the larger fleece pieces with pretty prints. And now the kids use them as lightweight blankies.
A few fleece pieces were smaller, less than 2 yards but more than a yard. I used those to make "throws". Here are 2 I made for the couch in the trailer. The couch is "pleather". It feels cold when it's cold out. These throws are perfect.
It sat prized in my stash a looong time. I couldn't bear to donate it.
I tacked the fleece to (a cotton piece of fabric for the back) with beads. I used brown and green beads on the fleece. Not sure if you can "see" them. Then when the throw is washed the front/back doesn't separate, or bubble.
I bought the owl fabric recently for a craft I'll show another time. I had to buy it in a 3 yard piece. I only needed 1/2 a yard for the craft project, but I loved the design. It reminds me of our Lodge in the north woods. So it was a perfect.
Why do I think I'd wear those things? (jackets?) Years ago I once made a quilted jacket that was loved by everyone but me! I should have given it away, but no it hung in my closet for years waiting to be worn. :o( And then I donated it.
Of course I didn't "need" these. But we are enjoying them!
(((HUGS))) and prayers and Happy Creating!
This is the 3rd and last window in the Lodge. We are outside most of the time so windows don't matter much. We mostly use the windows ...
It started with a need to use up fabric that I collected. After donating 75% of it there was still a lot. I love fabric. But up until no...
Above- a Tshirt gets a skirt :o) Yes, it's the easiest upcycle ever that has been done to death. I am just not that comfortable sewin...
