Up/Recycling car boot tat....
...treasure ideas needed
Today's haul included 2 rugs, one red withblack, green and yellow 'check', the other a green/grey; a loose weave lady's coat (I'm going to like working with that one ); a single mans jumper, stripy and a sort of woven pink jacket thing (I suspect it was very expensive when new); a mans dogtooth jacket (very useful pockets in the lining); a wool skirt in blue and a 'vintage' tabard thing in slightly knobbly green.
I also grabbed a handful of beaded jewellery.
Total cost £12!
So, the jumper will be felted and made into a winter hat/scarflet/wrist warmer set.
The jackets and skirt will make nice bags as will the blankets - but that is getting a bit samey.
What else could I make?
Does anyone want to share ideas/patterns etc? I have a lot of ideas but I think I am missing a few tricks, maybe cos we don't have kids I miss some really simple stuff!
How much can we recycle? What can be upcycled? How crafty can we be??http://relovedremnants.blogspot.co.uk/ Where I have Adventures in Sewing

A body warmer with a blanket using lining out of the coat maybe.Carol
God helps them that help themselves.

The blankets could me the outer for a bean bag? Or perhaps making some cushions? Even maybe little scented pillows if you get what I mean?
