Jeans cover

To hide a plastic but useful unit I have by my bed. The jeans took a bit of mangling to get in the right position.

Day 1 - Cutting Out, 35 minutes

All cut out, took a little longer as it's a border pattern. I also wanted the sleeves to have the same flowers on it.

So it didn't end up being from scratch

Did my "Sewing Bee" challenge today. In the jeans pile was a pair I liked the colour of denim jeans that were in my scrap pile so made them into a skirt. It was too big in the waist so made smaller and added elastic so the back does game. The denim has a stretch to it so it's very comfy.

I am wearing it straight away! It probably took 1 1/2 - 2 hours

Crochet upcycle!

This t shirt yarn rug is growing, I'm moving on to a multi coloured outer section soon. It's going to need a good wet and stretch to get it flat.

Another little storage make, a bespoke cloth for the coffee footstool. It's nice having things to hand but tucked away.

I made matching speaker covers too!
