Better each day

Yesterday was a good day. We even went to a 4th of July party for a little while. I've caught a terrible cold and I haven't had a cold in years. I'm sure my immune system has been greatly compromised with the stress and the surgery. I can do anything I feel like doing today, but I know I'm not up to driving. I tire too easily.

I'm spending the day knitting and spinning. I did take a very short, very slow walk around the block. Enough exercise for today.

Well, this isn't exactly a repurposed item, but it's sewn & knit, so I think perfect to share (mod, feel free to delete if you disagree!). I just finished Kathryn Ivy's Summerlin, you knit a bodice then sew a skirt to it and it is BEYOND cute! I made this for my best friends daughter. I can't wait to get a picture of her in it!

There are more details on my Rav page here, or on my blog!

Pimp My Ironing Board

I had some material sitting around for about 3 years with no idea what to do with it. So - I chose the repurposing project as a chance to update my ironing board. My camera acted up so I don't have a before picture but the original cover was gross. I have had that cover for almost 8 years. The pad still works great, so that is why I opted to cover it with new material. I didn't have to spend $30.00 to replace it and I got the chance to use material that was taking up space in my fabric stash. Here is the final product:

Something old, something new....

I believe this started life as a curtain panel from Ikea. I saw it and knew it had to be an A-Line skirt. I used the book "Sew What! Skirts". Both skirts are the basic A-Line from the beginning of the book.

Thanks for looking. :)

The Hat Pattern

Since I had two requests for the hat pattern in the last post, I thought I should give the link in a seperate post. Hope you all enjoy making it as much as I did.
And let me know if you need help with this. I have the pattern drafted already so if you prefer that, then contact me through my blog and I will be happy to post it with a tutorial if need be (yes, I want to make another one).
