what being inspired by others can do!
was on Mel Goodsells blog this morning. its quickly become one of my favs to visit a number of times a week. anyway she had used up some towels to make some dishclothes. That started me thinking about my store of cloth nappies that we no longer use. I wouldnt give them to anyone and i dont expect we will use them for more babies so i cut a few up, and made them into dishclothes. i stitched two 8 x 8in pieces of the cloth together and then used some binding on the edges. (i did get in trouble from my dh for making them pretty when they would be used to mop up hehe)
while making the dishclothes i was looking at the scraps and thinking about mels next post which will be a felt food tutorial, this lead to me thinking about emilys birthday. We are getting her a kitchen for her birthday (more on that later as we r making it) and i want to make some of this felt food for her birthday, today i started on her birthday present by making her a kitchen set hehe...she has two dishclothes, 2 teatowels and some oven mits all made out of the scraps from my dishclothes for the actual kitchen.
dont u think they will look cute all hung up on her little kitchen.
i have been getting a collection of knitting needles that were all just floating around the house. So i created this folder for them. Dont look too closely its not great sewing i should of stopped i had had enough after the little set i made for emily...but i am glad i did it, its already in use. Im planning on adding a page to the middle to hold some of the other things i have gotten to aid my knitting as well as having a few extra needle holders there
ok i will be back later in the week to show off some of the progress we hope to make on emily's kitchen, we r getting all the wood precut for it tomorrow. wish us luck, we r hoping a little knowledge will go a long way! hehe and with some felt food too
