I dislike throwing things away that can still be used. In this case a pair of my son’s jeans. I just could not resist turning his old pair of jeans (with a few holes in), into a lovely cat.
I’ve made a new table cloth for my dining room and decided some placemats in the same fabric would look lovely. I had a lot of fun digitising the knife, fork and cake fork, then embroider it on the fabric.
I’ve always admired people making soft toys. However I thought that it would just be too hard to do. When I saw I could make an ITH kitty, I thought I’d give it a try. What fun! ITH is making something In The Hoop of an embroidery machine, so there is normally very little sewing…
What a learning curve! I saw some beautiful knitted scarfs on Pinterest and was intrigued. So I did a little bit of research and found brioche knitting. What I didn’t realise was that it was really going to mess with my brain with some time! I looked on Craftsy (now BluPrint) and found quite a…
… and then second one. It was so much fun, I couldn’t stop at one! The first one, I had great fun with marble art on the fabric before I started. The second one I made from my hubby’s old jeans and shirt. I must admit, this is my favourite one!

On Friday the weather suddenly changed and it was cold, wet and grey. No better time to decide to quickly knit a warmish summer top that I can just throw on over a t-shirt.
I love recycling fabric! Here is my latest project. So far I’ve made a little handbag and a knitting basket out of one leg of my hubbies old jeans.
One basket done! And working on another small one…
