Even though I have finished the (re)purposed projects with the vintage quilt [at least for now], I have a few more items to show you that involve reusing fabric for purposes that was not originally intended.
A co-worker was moving and cleaning out to lighten the load for the cross country move. A friend of his, who worked for a national furniture chain, had passed along upholstery samples for which I became the lucky recipient.
What, you ask, to do with fabric samples? Well that’s a silly question; you know me better than that! Make pumpkins of course!
Don’t you just love this little pink chenille number? She’s cute and prissy with that lace collar. She looks so much like those velvet pumpkins that are so trendy right now. The lace comes from my friend’s mother’s sewing stash. I love it!
