Cut the back off a pair of my old jeans; added the ruffle and tie from fabric in my stash that happened to have aprons on it! I will  use this apron at retreats and workshops because I always forget my sewing “tools” at the cutting table or ironing board! And I may use it at home!

Sassy is made from an old chenille bedspread that I found at a yard sale. I made her to use in the Fall season to sit on a bench my Daddy made in the early sixties so the grandkids could reach the dinner table.

These are the two pillows I made for a friend using her Grandfather's ties. It was a challenge as most of the ties were black. The red Christmas tie was used on the back of the larger of the two pillows. She wanted it used, but it did not match any of the other ties, So I went to Miracle Hill and bought a shirt for $1.00 to be used as the pillow backing. I simply attached the tie to the back of he pillow. On the smaller pillow, I appliqued a Dresden plate design. Once I figured out my designs, I relaxed and enjoyed myself.

I used this pattern from 1999 to make this upcycled top from a tablecloth. Easy and few seams.

The front and back of the bag are made from a jeans skirt. The strap/gusset is from the leg of a pair of jeans.

The pattern is The Inner Circle Bag from Diane Spencer-Ogg. Her patterns are not difficult and all are designed to be sewn on a domestic sewing machine.
