The bottom of our thrifted rocker ripped out last summer as someone went to set down. Ow! Hubby to the rescue!

He had always wanted to cane something so he jumped at the chance to work on this.

Yay! Now we can sit down! But we can't lean back?

Oh, here it is. He fixed that problem too. Ain't he sweet? Cheesy

And a nice seat to enjoy the yard from what was once trash.

62  Faded, abused tote to Midnight Blue Daily Tote I want to be seen carrying in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by rottenlittleboys on: May 19, 2008 03:12:54 PM
Hi all!

I had an old, faded and abused looking tote. It had served me many years as a good and faithful bag, but it had succumbed to time itself, loosing its youthful bloom. But it had such good bones, great material and I could really use it. But I could not think what to do to make it better looking.

One day, after making up tons of fabric grocery bags, I had two forlorn pieces of material getting ready to go back into the scrap box. Until, these two pieces of fabric cuddled up together and I saw the beauty they made side by side. They looked good, but along came a ribbon and gave it a fairy tale look.

There was not enough of either material to cover a side, so I cut it up and sewed it into strips.

Very soon, I had a bag to be proud of.

Now this happy bag resides in my Jeep and whenever I need to pick up just a few things for the day, I can always toss it in this bag and not have to worry about carrying home five plastic bags inside.

63  Wrap Skirt bags in back? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by rottenlittleboys on: September 28, 2007 02:05:14 PM
I have just made two wrap skirts. One fits perfectly, the other sags horribly in the back. What am I doing wrong? Would darts fix this problem? If darts would help, two in the back or one on each side?

The front lies perfectly.

As soon as I saw the color combinations, I thought of VaTech! Good color choices.

Here is an extra-long twin quilt for my brother-in-law, who will be attending Virginia Tech in the fall (Go Hokies!).
