What I've been up to

I've not posted on Recycled Sewing for a while , but thats not because I haven't been sewing.. I have! But its nothing different, only more chalk mats, cards and tea towel bag holders, so I thought I'd blog about all of my latest projects in one go.

I've decided to make matching recycled cards with the chalk mats I am selling, as they make great gifts. The cards are made from the same fabric as the chalk mats, usually pillowcases. It is a great way to use up scraps of the same fabric.

In addition to that, I've purchased some awesome Brazillian made vintage teatowels on eBay which are so cute I almost dont want to do anything except look at them, especially the bunny rabbits!

I have made two of them into plastic bag dispenser holders for Christmas gifts:

So thats what I've been doing, as well as refashioning some old vintage clothes, I am on the look out for more recycled sewing projects to do, so watch this space.
