Here they are. They need a little bit of work. I want to make the table a darker stain and then paint and possibly reupholster the chairs too. I am looking forward to having fun with this set and make it my own and look classier.
Yesterday I went to Fancy Tiger Crafts in downtown Denver. It is a knitting/crocheting/sewing store. They also have their own clothing store right next door. I found two beautiful recycled glass buttons for my coffee cozy. They look great together! I also got a jelly thimble, because my finger has been getting rough housed with my sewing adventure (to be explained next). I was also drooling over all of their yarn! They sell all organic yarn and are super supportive of small businesses that sell yarn. Love it! I bought two half baby alpaca and half silk skeins of yarn. I am working on the pattern of how I want to use it currently. Will post more details of it later!
I had a bucket of old t-shirts that I was never going to wear again along with other fabric scraps. I was trying to figure out what in the world I was going to do with them. I was thinking I could really use a rug for the bathroom floor and that is when I remembered my box of old t-shirts. I had seen so many rugs made out of t-shirt scraps that I just knew I had to give it a whirl. So, I spent two nights cutting up all of my t-shirts into scraps. Yay!
Then I started braiding them.
Those are about 10 inches long. But they were not quite long enough so i just braided in more strips. I have about three rows done and sewn together. Will keep you updated on the progress and show you the finished product later. 🙂
Anyway, there you go!
