Scrap Happy May

May 14, 2019

I first started participating in Scrap Happy in May 2018 and have posted every month since

so this is an anniversary of a sort

almost didn’t make it this month – only a very small project

this jacket was finished several years ago and a lady bought it at a studio tour

sorry for the bad picture, it is the only one I have

she came to the tour again in April and wanted a small bag she could wear around her neck

there were scraps of the fabric in the handwoven pile

in fact there might be enough to make myself a top

approximately four inches square

there was enough of the original yarns to twist a cord

the lining came from the scrap pile – the colours are perfect

the closing snap came from the sewing box – unfortunately it is black

the little mother-of-pearl button of course came from the button jar

now on to the next year – wonder if I can keep it up?

    What a pretty bag. Very clever use of scraps 🙂 Did you weave the fabric yourself?

    That is a perfect ScrapHappyversary project 🙂 Lovely colour combinations and I love those tiny white tufts in the weave!

      Kjerstin – you do it all the time and the Hittys would have fun thinking up new projects. Go to Kate’s blog and she can get you started.
