11  Simple tarot card case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by EarthboundMisfit on: February 03, 2013 10:42:27 AM
I made this as a holiday gift from a repurposed skirt and some felt remnants I've had in my stash for about 10 years.
I didn't follow a pattern, I basically just drew around a standard Ryder Waite deck and adjusted as I went.  It's all hand stitched, apart from the flat piece for wrapping the deck, I stitched around the edges of that with my machine because I wanted it to be very neat. It was a very straightforward project, only took me an evening.

12  New kitchen chair covers from repurposed jeans in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by EarthboundMisfit on: February 03, 2013 09:30:58 AM
I used three pairs of old jeans to recover these kitchen chairs.  One was standard pale blue fade, one was a pair of silver jeans that I used to wear clubbing (!) and one was a dull blue with a brown-ish wash.  I cut them into strips and sewed them together into various sized stripes with my sewing machine (this was also my first sewing machine project, I've always sewn by hand before).

I'm pleased with the results, although they're a bit wavy here and there where I had to pull them tight to staple them onto the seats.  I was on a deadline as someone needed to borrow the chairs, what I might do is take them off and make them into fitted covers that can just slip over the seat pads without having to staple.  Happy with them though, they look cool in my kitchen.  The silver denim is a lot shinier in real life than in the pics!

My first ever cross stitch and my second:

I really enjoyed doing these, totally addictive. I can't wait to do some more, just have to find a cool pattern for the next one!
