The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 79 - My last little girl's skirt from this quilt and owl pants.

I will get back to my metre of fleece tomorrow but I have some special visitors coming tomorrow from Adelaide and I wanted to make a little gift for one of them. I can't wait to see them.

I have made two things. First is the last quilt skirt I will be making from the vintage chenille quilt that I have made quite a few skirts from. I have given the rest to someone else to make some creations from and give it new life. :)

This skirt has some flowers and dots sewn on from pink corduroy scraps and scraps of another pale blue chenille bedspread.

I also visited a church charity shop this morning and was extremely excited to find another chenille bedspread in fantastic condition in a camel brown colour that will be perfect for little boys clothes. I couldn't believe my luck after looking for over a year and just giving away the other one a week ago. I was obviously meant to give the other one away. It was only $4.50 and is really thick and warm for winter. Expect to see it as part of a creation or three very soon.

The second is a pair of red cords with a little owl friend on a branch.
