My son, camo boy, had worn out a pair of cargo pants. They were too small to turn into shorts, so I used a wonderful tutorial over at Noodlehead to make a messenger bag. This tutorial makes a nice size bag for an adult, but I resized it to make the bag for my son.
Speaking of boys, I came across this interesting web site about ties. The author has an interesting collection of tie cakes on this post. That is one area of repurposing that I haven’t tried yet – making something out of old ties.
Speaking of repurposing, Implausible Yarn was part of a discussion on Ravelry about Bella’s quilt. I haven’t seen the movie, so I was not aware that Bella receives a T-Shirt quilt. Don’t you want to make one now??? Now that it’s cool to have a T-Shirt quilt! (I’m really not into the movies. I did not read the books and only saw the first movie. I don’t love any of the characters – or the actors, for that matter. I know, I know, I’m weird!)
Speaking of making things, Sari used my Oversized Beach Tote Tutorial to make this adorable bag. She added pockets for cell phones, sun screen, etc.
Here’s a look at the inside.
Speaking of bags, here’s the latest ones in my shop.
Speaking of speaking, I do it WAY too much! Wish I could talk to you all in person!
