I finally completed three items and was able to photograph them on Tuesday thanks to a heat wave of 45 degrees here.
The first item is a cute party apron. I call it a party apron because it has a sequin trim. The purple and green fabric is really adorable and came from a little girl's skirt. Of course, one must always wear one's pearls while entertaining.
This red satin purse by Liz Claiborne was upcycled into a razzle dazzle evening bag. I found the fun circles and squares in Oma Miller's sewing box. I'm not sure what they were originally made for but I thought they dressed up the bag in an unusual way.
Since things were getting way too "dressy" in the craft studio, I decided to take things down a notch and made a "folksy" type of accessory. This pillow was made from an upcycled woman's sweater. The red gussets were made from a man's sweater.
This is my favorite part of the pillow - the buttons. These vintage shirt buttons were tied on to add a fun accent.
That's all for now. I've have more aprons in the works, including some larger sizes for those of you who have been requesting them. Also, if you have a favorite skirt or dress (or even a table cloth or sheets)that you'd like to have made into an apron, just let me know. The item must be machine washable. Plus, I charge less for aprons made with your own items since I don't have to pay for the upcycled fabric.
