I am in the process of the daunting task of cleaning all of the old crap from my basement and look what I found! I started to carry it to the take to the dump pile but could hear my dear online friend Glen all the way from Baton Rouge saying - no! Look at all that beautiful rust! I've never "rusted" fabric but remember some of the wonderful fabric she has created from things like this.
I have no idea how to do it but am sure I can find directions online so stay tuned.
Sewing wise I am making a bunch of the tablet/ phone pillows to sell at the fair. They require a fair amount of hand sewing and stuffing which is perfect for porch sitting, another favorite summmer pastime. I've put a tutorial on how to make them on a page here on the blog. Be sure to stuff as much in there as you can. It's key to holding the tablet well.
