Upcycled Bottle

Yarn Art as I like to call it.

This was a piece that I did a while back that I would like to share with everyone. This was an old bottle we had lying around and it was just something that really did not look very attractive. I am not saying that this made it look anymore attractive, but I like to think that it’s at least an improvement. I used a bunch of left over yarn shrivels to decorate this and used hot glue to secure it on to the bottle. This project was pretty fun but I suggest some sort of finger guard to protect from the not glue. My poor finger tips were pretty tore up after completion.

I really love to upcycle old stuff, or reuse something. As a mom on a budget I like to save money where ever I can. Here is another Upcycled idea I did with my little boys old baby bottles.

I am a color fanatic so almost everything I own is color coded. All my sewing thread is color coded by hue.

 

 

Well I am glad that I shared some of these ideas with you. I know I am not the first to think of either of these ideas but never the less I always like to share. Soon I will be decorating the covers to all my containers. I will update these and share how they look after their sweet little makeover.

 

Make sure you take a look below to see some of the upcoming projects that I will be finishing or working on in the near future.

A work in Progress.

My First Quilt  Cont…..

Well this is definitely my work in progress and after some minor surgery on it lol I think I can get back on to the roll of things. I am new to the sewing and quilting world so I knew when I jumped into making a quilt for my 2 project that I was going to come across some issues. I have since figured out my mistake and can’t wait to keep going on this one. I really like the way this is starting to come together. I am unsure of how I will actually quilt this in terms of quilting design. If anyone has any suggestions please I would love to hear them. hopefully I will have this finished by the end of the month.

 

Happy Quilting
