Not Knitting, But I've Been Busy!

I've had a friend visiting for the past couple of weeks and she's a sewer, not a knitter. So we hit the sewing room and got creative with some projects. I made about 20 of these.

These bags are made from old t-shirts and are a great way to recycle your favorite t-shirt.

Then we made several of these.

I like to tuck a Starbuck's gift card in and give them for a little gift.

I also made myself a purse from a couple of fat quarters. I think I'll be doing another one of those - they're fun to do and I like the size of the purse.

Now it's time to get back to knitting!


  1. Gosh, you have been busy!!!
    I'm your ravelry secret pal, checking in to let you know that you should receive a little package any day now.....

  2. This is Laura (listeningmoth) again. I've been sewing, too (oops, I tried to paste in a link to my flickr page, but it won't stick, o well).

    20 t-shirt bags...I am very impressed. Love the Pezamania!

  3. Thanks, Laura! Your swap gifts stuffed in the cute Pink Floyd bag gave me the inspiration and idea :-) I had so many pez t-shirts that I thought I'd whip them up into bags. On to the next project... more altered tins.
