Project ReStyle - Accidentally Felted Jumper

Hello! I never really know what to say at the start of a blog post... Anyway, here we go! :) I'm on a bit of a make do and mend mission this year. For a number of reasons really, like trying to be more aware of waste, trying not to spend money if we don't really need to, to save money for our wedding, and I get to do more projects but with free stuff! It's a win win situation really. A few people have inspired me into doing this, Claire, Elsie, Emily, Kara, Rachel. There's some great inspiration on all of these blogs.

My first project was with an accidentally felted jumper of Dylan's. He wasn't too bothered when I  shrunk it, he only wore it twice because it was too itchy. So that was a plus, he's quite touchy about his clothes and such. I've used too pieces from the hood to patch a pair of his holey jeans and two larger pieces to make him a pencil case. I haven't had chance to take a photo of the jeans yet, as he wanted to wear them straight away and now they're in the wash. But here's a photo of the pencil case. He was really pleased with it, and so was I. I feel the need to make one for myself now.

I'm also working on another mini album at the moment, here's a sneaky peek of it.

I started this before Christmas but got side tracked with finishing off gifts and cards! I'm very easily distracted! In fact I've got quite a few  projects on the go at the moment. So I'd better get off the internet and get some work done!

See you soon!

Valentines Mini Album

Good morning all! Here's a little mini album I made this week, using some of my supplies from a new scrapbooking kit club that I've subscribed to called Quirky Kits. I have used some of my own stash too, I like to mix things up a bit. I also used some journaling cards from Elle's studio, that I won on her blog a couple of weeks ago. :)

Most of the papers used in this album are Sassafras Paper crush which came in my kit, but I also used some of their Count Me In and Cherry Delicious papers and a mixture of Sassafras Sweet Treats and Blossoms stickers. The heart shaped album is from Maya Road.

Happy Valentines Day For Monday! Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
