I sewed up four purses, two for holiday gifts and two for my soon-to-be Etsy shop. I made two of each style.
I also sewed up five cell phone cases. I gave two as gifts. All of these are made from…former shirts! Except the brown corduroy, this was leftover from my Wee One’s first Halloween costume (HERE and HERE). One I gave to Nature Boy; it was the front logo on an Outer Banks Brewing Station tee that was ruined in a vomiting incident at Pittsburgh Irish Fest. You might think (and several years ago this may have been true) he had more Guinness he could handle; but no, our dear Wee One fell ill and while daddy was carrying him, well you know….I don’t have a pic of it at present.
The other one I don’t have a pic of was gifted to my mother. It was made from a shirt she took to a tailor to try to have it fitted but the fabric tore. I’ve made a few silly gifts all year from it. A wallet clutch, a sleeping mask, a scarf/belt. I still have some of it left too.
What did my mother say about it? “I can put my hospitalization (she means medical insurance) cards in it!” Hmm, maybe I should market these to the AARP crowd?
