More Cashmere Mittens!

You might remember all my adventures in making mittens from fulled wool sweaters.  I’ve pared down my wool collections to just cashmere (and some other wools to use under the suede palms) and come up with a few more pairs of cashmere mittens for this year’s craft shows.  These mittens are made with suede palms… Continue reading More Cashmere Mittens!

New Pillowcases and Past Creations

I created some pillowcases out of my collected upcycled vintage floral sheet and thrifted gingham and striped fabrics! I made two for our home, and two for a wedding gift.  I made each one out of three different fabrics, I embroidered some of the edges, I used French seams on the sides, and I used… Continue reading New Pillowcases and Past Creations
