Vintage Pillowcase Scrap flowers - Flower Power

These cute and summery brooches were made using vintage pillowcase scraps left over from some purses I had made. They also have vintage buttons in the center. Easy to make, eco-friendly and pretty...

Recycled Necktie Card Holders

I made these business/credit/gift card holders from second-hand neckties. I *love* shopping for second-hand neckties :)

Re: Book Giveaway: Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Grandeur

I love the front cover styling! I made a crib quilt for my first daughter after she was born, but have not had the time to make one for my second daughter. Now that they are in school, I think I could be inspired to make quilts for all of us with this book! Thanks for this great contest!

Re: Recycled Necktie Card Holders

Hi Joan! Thanks :) I've made wrist cuffs using the skinny end of the tie, and I've also used scraps and button covers to make little magnets. Do you visit flickr? There are lots of ideas in the Sewing with neckties group http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/
