here is the little cottage Ive been working on for what seems lke forever......it is all hand sewn and made out of recycled sweaters, blazers, sweatshirts.... there are few "new" things...like the seedbeads.... but for the most part everything was once something else.....

the vines were from a wool sweater that had been undone...(thanks to imafundork)....and YES, the leaves and vine were sewn on... the leaves one at a time... Tongue

a little flower on the front steps was made out of the lining of a woman blazer......
........and the little gardens in the front... (the one with the mushroom, was my entry in the tiny challenge a few months ago)

and just for a size reference......sorry the ruler is upside down....just noticed it

it was a very time consuming project......but tons of fun trying to figure all of it out using recycled items.... thanks for looking
