Re-purpose Sweater Wrap



I to a sweater that I have had for years and cut off the bottom just under the armpits.

Serge the raw edge. Fold & pin.

Turn under the serged side and sew along to finish off the bottom edge.

I gathered down one side using a gathering stitch from the top to the bottom.

Sew it with a regular 2.5 stitch to secure it.

I took about a yard of black satin ribbon and gathered down one side.

Then wrapped it around into the shape of a flower. Sewed through the center to secure it.

Then added some left-over sweater piece for the center of the flower. And finished it off with some beads.




I can't wait to wear it with the new black dress I just bought!

From Drop Cloth to Painted Rug

I had a wheelchair ramp built going into my house for my 6 yr old who is in a wheelchair. I have loved having it. He is getting so big that it was getting difficult to get him in & out of the house. This is so much easier!   Here's the problem:  It's ugly and my welcome mat/entry rug doesn't fit! No bueno!!   I looked for a rug that would fit but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. So...I decided to make my own.   I got a canvas drop cloth from Lowe's for just under $10.00.    I gave it a good ironing to get the creases out.   I had some white house paint from another project and painted the drop cloth. (Tip: Even though this is a drop cloth the paint soaked through to the backside. I put a plastic drop cloth under it to protect my table.)   Then I stenciled it.  I was going to do a different pattern and transfer it on to the drop cloth but I already had the stencil and let's face it...
