Kookaloo, nice recovery on the failed doll body
Smileyyogini terrific hats all around!
Bookstorebabe, I'll be watching to see how the water squirter paint job works out, I have to do that for a space girl costume for this halloween. I just bought some spikey silver bracelets for that today, funny how I'm thinking October in May!
Misskohaku I love those star beads, those are terrific.
Here's my latest destash binge:
Mending including a total recon on that brown Old Navy dress. It was XL and I am S so it had to be completely taken apart and reassembled.
2 pairs of yoga pants for my small girl from XL men's tshirts from the thrift store and a bit of ribbing.
This is my FAVOURITE kid's book, I just LOVE it so much. When I saw this fabric version I bought it even though my kids are too old for a baby book. Now a friend's expecting though so I finally finished it and will send it off to her with some other baby things I've made over the years.
These mats have 2 layers of insulbrite in them so they'll work for ironing on but also, and more importantly, to put hot jars on when I'm doing canning. I burned the heck out of a couple of wood tables last fall, those jars are HOT!
(why is this photo upside down photobucket?
Check out the fabric, those windmills are super cute.
Laundry bag from the most excellent fabric.
I'm pretty sure I found this stuff at the thrift store, can you believe it? It's heavy canvas too.
I had a box full of pockets from pants I cut up for projects (because you know I can't throw anything away!). I've made 2 of these before (that still need bindings, ha ha! I'm working on them too) and this time I had enough pockets for 3 so there will be more to show you eventually. I adore these things and certainly don't need 5 of them but I can't see myself giving them away or selling them so they're going to become our new wallpaper, ha ha.
My mom keeps finding these fabric globe balls at the thrift store and buying them so when I found this piece of fabric I had to get it as a joke. It's neat though, makes an interesting quilt back.
AND THAT'S NOT ALL!!! I have 2 tshirt quilts nearly finished, 3 yoga mat bags, a box of sock monkeys, some more mending, bunches of cloth bags that just need finishing, etc etc etc. When I binge, I Binge!
