so pleased with how I could turn that ugly piece of wool into this…
Lots of work..but Oh I had FUN.. all the way!! :o)
It became a Tea Cosy… :o))
when I had that piece of wool in my hand..
both smelly and very thick.. I thought and thought what it could be done into…
it could hold heat for a long time… yes it could…
to sit on.. very warm…. but the easy way out..lol.. hmmm…
but…one thing I have wanted and a very much needed thing in our household
was a teacosy… so I decided on that!
All materials are recycled…
shirts, pants, old fabrics, pearls….
except for the batting on the backside piece…
even the pearls are recycled from old clothes… :o)
Even the thread used is old..
found a very old silk thread on spool at work
.. and tried it out..
and it worked..
even in my new machine..:o))
And that was the trickiest part to do..
the freehand quilting… on the thick wool with a cotton layer on the inside..
PHEEWW.. but we did it …
Zonnie and me!! :o)
Still at home with this autumns biggest flu!!
I am test sewing …have a lot to learn on my new machine..
