I challenged myself to a "No-buying" challenge- Some may call it a "Fabric diet." If you sew, a fabric diet is just as hard to do as the real diet- as I stay out of the bakery I must also stay out of the fabric store, less I be tempted! So I challenged myself to make 15 projects- Here's what I've done so far:
1 purse for a friend (no picture taken- I know, how could I?)
1 camera wristlet strap inspired by this lovely artist . Below is what mine looks like.
1 sweet purse for my niece. I got the idea here. But I added a strap and made it a tad bigger. See:
Wanna see a little more of it? I love the red stitching with the cow print and the inside of the bag was made with left over curtain fabric from our nursery.
The next one I came up with a pattern/plan on my own and just went along with it! It's my purse organizer. I can change purses in a flash now! I might even post a tutorial for it at some point!
My next attempt was a daunting one! I wanted to make a scripture case, one that looks like a purse. I came up with the pattern on my own. The zipper took me 3 tries! YIKES! I took pictures of the steps, maybe this will be a tutorial as well some day!
Then my 3rd scripture case came out the best- of course NOW I know what I am doing but I am done. This is for my little A. He's so sweet and proud to have his own brand new Bible and case BUT he also needed to see if his pen worked- where else should he check- on his monogram A of course! *sigh*
Today I made some prettiness for my kitchen out of my scraps from my kitchen curtains- 2 basket liners and a bag sausage!
The basket liners were really BLAH before:
Other items not pictured are 2 scarves and a pair of mittens out of some random plaid flannel.
SO if I have added right, I am done 11 (counting the 2 baskets as one and the 2 scarves as one) and just like any other diet of hard work I have done- It looks like I haven't made a dent in my fabric. I might just up my challenge. I'll decide that later- in the mean time, enjoy my pics!
