it does mean however that the making pile has grown somewhat while the weather has been so stunning. i do have a few garden based creations to share however some of which i have actually made in the last few weeks!
|best peg bag in the world!|
this peg bag (clothes pins for americans) was born out of frustration with one I actually bought a few years ago; the sort on a hanger that you hang on the line. I cut up the old one as i liked the fabric and used and old pair of jeans as a bucket style bag. the strap was a lovely cotton webbing length from WRAP (Waford Recycling Arts Project), just perfect. i made the exact length for my hand to reach into easily while it sits on my shoulder. i can get the washing in an out in a flash. important for a domestic goddess such as myself ha ha ha!
|upcycled gardening apron|
this gardening apron was made a while ago admittedly but was made from a lovely book that Luisa and Edache gave me for my birthdat ( Homemade vintage by Christina Strutt) again from old jeans and some nice cotton ticking... the pocket is the most useful part of it. the photos were taken by o - pretty good for a four year old! she did tell me by tummy was in the way though...hmm.
