upcycled #1

In April I saw a sign outside my local British Red Cross shop asking for volunteers for an in-store craft/up-cycling group so I signed up. The aim of the group is to up-cycle items from goods which in their donated condition are not regarded as being suitable to sell. The group has met weekly for four weeks now and each week I’ve come home with an assortment of fabrics and ideas for things to make and as a result, my embroidery has been put aside (but only temporarily!).

Table mats, worn out curtains, and fabric scraps were used to create these pocket wall hangings. Plant canes were stitched to the back along the top edge to give stability.

    what a lovely idea! I love the way you’ve appliqued the pockets so they’re a little more interesting

I like it when people write to me
