Creating My Way To Success!
I have several nighties in my clothes upcycling stash and had an idea as to how they could best be upcycled.
The soft, silky fabric makes for beautiful little bags made using my Fabric Origami Bag tutorial:
Well, I have had an interesting week or two of sewing. Besides this bag, I was also trying to make a dress for my daughter out of one of my husband's shirts.... BOMBED! I've also been working on some little booties that were supposed to be so easy. Thanks Martha Stewart! They were pretty easy, but they looked so cheap. I'm trying to improve on those and will hopefully write about them soon.
As far as this project....it almost bombed. I guess that should be expected when you're experimenting with new things. For a while now I have been trying to figure out how I can combine my two loves, sewing and pressed flowers/leaves, into a bag. Improvements need to be made with the concept, but I'm really happy with the end result. I hope you like it too!

From Broken to Useful from All Things Alysha~
This wooden chair was left outside and started to fall apart. So I placed a flower pot in the broken bottom part and placed it in our front yard. We used to have a large bush there but the landscaping people needed to access the sprinklers so they cut it down leaving an eye sore of a stump. This broken chair/flower stand is a great way to hide something ugly and use something that would have gone to the dump. I'm planning on turning the broken top part into a trelis for climbing plants but that's for another day. . .
