The girls were ripping their old dresses and bonnets, sponging and pressing them and sewing them together again the other side out, to look like new
Farmer Boy, was one of the books in the popular Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Although I haven’t done what Almanzo Wilders sisters; Eliza Jane and Alice did, I have ripped apart outfits I’ve designed (and some I haven’t) and made other items out of them. It’s a great way to extend the life out of something I no longer wear.
A few weeks ago, I rounded up a few yarn crafted items that I don’t wear anymore, and put them in a “to be repurposed bag.” Eventually, I’ll start unravelling them. For those who’re unfamiliar with this process I’ve found a great picture tutorial on how to unraveling a sweater, time to pull the yarn.
So yes… I have plenty of projects to keep me busy for a while…
Of course, my daughter already has asked me to make a Monster High tote bag for her using their signature skull. Tomorrow, I’ll be purchasing graph paper, and I’ll sketch a Monster High skull design onto graph paper. I’ll follow the design to knit it onto her tote bag.
Once my fathers knitted Bible cover is complete, and the hats have been finished; I’ll cast on the Monster High tote bag.
