Supposed to be cleaning......

....and getting rid of some of my stuff.  My daughter and 2 grands are coming to stay in June until she gets everything ready to go to Hawaii...So I need space and need to give up my craft room.   I don't mind.  It can all go in hubby's closet (tee hee).....and the bedroom. 

But in my quest to get this accomplished, I came across this.....Blue and yellow upholstery ticking.

And it was going to go in the thrift store pile.  But.....I thought...WAIT.........I can whip up something out of it, after all, I GOT it at the thrift store to use...........

I have these dye cut hearts and cats that I bought 3 years ago, Again, to make something with them.

So, I just started cutting, and sewing, and glueing.  Here's what I ended up with...
An Eyeglass case.......need that!
A couple of mini purses.  I just covered over the craft purses from HL. 

And this cute little banner for a child's room.

That's it!  Now to finish trying to "clean".  LOL
The banner & bags will soon be in my Etsy shop.
Have a great week. 


  1. Don't you love cleaning. I always find something I didn't remember I had though I bought it once upon a time because I needed it. So fun. I love what you did with it. Hugs. Tammy

  2. You did some really cute things with what you found when cleaning! Very nice. Nancy

  3. I don't know what you do at the infusion center but no matter what it is, it has to go to patient care in some way. God Bless you for that. Your right, it's not easy but we take one step forward each day in hopes of cure or better treatments. I hope your cleaning is going well and your prep for the kids is finalizing. Enjoy every minute. Hugs. Tammy

  4. So glad you did not get rid of the ticking material, your projects are adorable! If you do send the remainder to the thrift store, could I give you the address of mine lol! Thank you for the congrats on my dress form business opportunity
