My daughter made a dress out of a vintage pillow case. It turned out super cute
I re-purposed this old sweater into a new sweater coat using scissors and some crochet!
If interested you can check out my blog post.
In my daughters kindergarden class we used old pillow cases to make Indian costumes. They looked super cute because the kids painted Indian symbols on them.
My most recent repurpose was using those clear plastic containers strawberries come in. I added some pattered scrapbook paper to the outside and lid top to cover the label. I lined the inside with tissue paper and added some fresh baked mini muffins. It was a nice gift to give.
I love using vintage (or just old!) sheets for the backs of my quilts. A lot of the prints are really fun and it adds an unexpected element to my quilts. Love that.
I'm currently working on a couple of throw pillows made from some vintage tea towels. rsgrandinetti@yahoo(dot)com
I've been working on repurposing all sorts of different gift boxes (and making them pretty by covering them with fabric, etc.) to store various mementos in. Working well so far, so fingers crossed!
I re-purposed old scrabble tiles and made magnets, I've also been crocheting a rag rug out of old sheets.
