More of That Gingham Shirt


Thank you for all of your wonderful encouraging comments about my upcycling projects with my green gingham shirt.  I have just about used it all up now and here are a few more finished items to show you.  2 Little Lavender bags each adorned with an applique heart and tied up with a scrap of torn quilters homespun.

 

I have lots of projects planned using some of the Graphics Fairy images on her blog.  This one is a little drawer sachet filled with dried lavender.

 

And a sweet little wall hanging

 

I use this saying a lot .....

 

And Finally I made a tote bag from one of the ruffles down the front of the shirt and used the scraps left over to make yo yo's to adorn it.

 

You are only limited by your imagination

 


It has been a lot of fun creating these projects and I hope that I have inspired you to look at recycled clothing a little differently.  I still have 1 yo yo and some ruffle left to play with another day.

Hugs - Fee X
