Babushka

This project was a light bulb moment! I was looking at the scraps leftover form the pocket book bag, trying to think of something to do with them. I hate to throw stuff out. But like Su said it will just pile up!! But, I was looking at a sleeve that I had cut off, and I thought it looked like a bandanna shape! So I trimmed it up a little, hemmed it and added some ties (isn’t this grosgrain fabulous?!:)) It only took about 15 minutes! Now I have something to make out of all those shirt sleeves that I usually throw away! Yay for me!!

Now I’m thinking of all the other ways to embellish shirt sleeves! This is for sale in my shop!

  2. One less piece to scrap to add to the pile!
    That's a great idea, and I love the ribbon.
