Apologies once again for the long gap between posts, but I have been busy! Firstly there's the advent tree - which I've had to wash and haven't yet sent to the winner of the bloghop because it was very sticky/tacky on the front. I used always artichoke to make the background cloth. I'm not sure what more I can do except iron the whole thing once again and cross fingers.
cartoon biplane online which I printed out and translated to fabric.
Lastly a bit of recycling (upcycling?)... Many towels in my linen cupboard are developing holes for various reasons. It seems a pity to just ditch them, especially as I do need bathmats. It occurred to me today that there's no reason I can't chop them up with my lovely bigshot and make new from old. This one is an old towel that has a velvety side and a loop side, so I've chopped it up into lots of squares with my scallop square and made a new mat. If it frays I'm not too concerned as it will add character. I'll do the same with other old bath-mats and make something slightly more colourful next time. Considering I whipped this up in just under an hour, I'm slightly pleased with myself. And now I know my bigshot dies will cut TOWELS!!!
