SYTYCS Entry, Week Two: Envelope Clutch
This week's So You Think You Can Sew challenge is "Repurposed Items."
Most of the things I thought of making at first have already been done (a lot). I spent a lot of time staring at old sweaters and worn out jeans. I was just not feeling inspired. So, I abandoned my box of sweaters and headed over to the thrift store.
I wandered the aisles, looking for inspiration to strike. The first thing I found that struck my fancy was a cream placemat. It was nothing special. It was a little stained, too. But, I liked the pleating around the edges. I was really excited, though, when a found a brightly colored table runner. I may have done a tiny little jump of joy. :) It was perfect.
