This week's creations were practical, I would say, rather than recreational or apparel-related. I completed the other wash cloth my friend and I were making together, but I still must tie in the loose ends. Jared's quilt is so close to being complete....man, that binding takes a while to complete when done by hand.
I started and finished this Summer retro picnic blanket from vintage sheets, pillow cases, and fabric, all from my stash, originally from the thrift store. It was experimental, really. I have never worked much with yellow before. The simple tutorial I followed was found at Rhythm of the Home.
I was getting tired of the thick, dark curtains on our dining room window, so I decided to use an old sheet to make sheers. I fit it to the window and decided thereafter that I would just leave the bamboo curtains as a border on the outside. It will be behind a table anyway, so length is of little concern to me. It lets in so much light now. It is not my favorite sheet selection, but I only had so many to choose from in what I have. It will certainly do for now.
....More to Come......
