Hello!  I've recently moved and gave away some 12 jumbo size boxes of fabric before I left.  Now I have no fabric in my new place.  Or almost none.  I've been doing a bit of scavenging at thrift stores and even found a whole bag of quilters scraps for free.  This is a couple of projects I've made with my bits of gleaning. 

A child's backpack made from a fat quarter printed with a flour sack design:

That's my boy.  We're hoping he'll grow some hair before he goes off to college.

There is a free pattern and tutorial for the backpack here.

The a bit of the free quilting scraps turned into a couple of appliqued bibs.  I'm rather pleased with them so I gave them names Cheesy

The 'Baby Unplugged' acoustic guitar:

The 'Wired for Sound' stratocaster:

Too much fun playing with different prints and colours.  There is a free pattern for the bibs here.

Questions and comments are always welcome Smiley

OMG I love these. Too bad my son is too little for a backpack. He could use some bibs though. I don't know where they heep disappearing to. I love your blog. Your boy is beautiful.

Sorry for the disjointed writing. I have had a long day at school. Smiley

Very cute stuff! Thanks for the tute links. I'll have to check them out. My son would love a backpack.
