Repurposed stuff/remnants

After moving I didn't have anywhere to hang my kitchen towels. So I took a thin strip of wood, fixed 3 pegs (not too tight)with little screws evenly spaced and screwed it to the door.
I haven't yet got around to painting the wood, but at least the towels are in a handy place out of the way!

PC table revamp

Thanks! I've finally got round to doing the top of my computer table which I got from another kind Jter. I saw this idea online where they had tables with comic books lacquered on top. Was seriously tempted to do Spongebob ;o)
It's the kid in me..lol anyway I decided on superheros instead. I've got enough sticky back plastic to do another one, if I get fed up of it.
So after a few printouts, organization and patience this is the outcome.

This basic dust cover for my sewing machine was made from a damaged underbed storage bag gotten from Jt (thanks Mary from Dublin). And a ribbon that was wrapped round a new robe.
I'm sure I'll make another one later or add to this one after each project.

Thankyou guenivere for all the lovely fabric have started to get stuck in already.
Used the lace curtaining to cover the porch windows and the outbuilding.
Made a pot stand and tea towel. And apron (bit of a Cath Kidston look), not going to use that design for the next one though!
The other half requested 2 pillowshams so this is what he got pic 3, a little luxury.

Thanks, the minute I saw the fabric I knew it was going to be my apron ... lol

Next on the agenda is applying the pillowcase theory to cushion covers, and a couple of tablecloths with matching place mats.

Table cloth and placemats

Working my way through that material and here is my latest project a table cloth and 4 placemats, I was really good this time and finished my raw edges!!

Hi Gormal

These are really lovely items, I'm not sure which is my favourite the pillowsham or the apron. I recently learned how to use my sewing machine that had been in the attic for 3 years. I've started a patchwork quilt but haven't had much time lately but seeing your projects has spurred me on a bit.

Thanks for sharing

Hi Gormal, love this idea. The cover on mine is falling apart. Another project for me to take on!! Eibh.

Oh Sparkwell you are brave, I don't know if I'd have the patience for a patchwork quilt. I did a basic one years ago for my parents, but have not had the urge to do another, although the thought did pass through my mind.
Anyway I made a list of other things to do, probably to avoid the quilt idea..lol
It's been a good few years since I used my machine... at least 5 years!!
I look forward to seeing that quilt when your done. I plan to make some bedding later too.

Eibh, I had to make it as the plastic one it came with had torn. And I have a feeling that it may end up as a lining for the next cover in the future.

Thanks for the comments and happy crafting.

I tried to take today off....lol.. went for a walk and found a pebble with a hole and thought ohh that would make a nice incense holder. Then I got home and remembered the tuna tin and turned it into a pin cushion (stuffed with wool as had no stuffing and a pebble for weight)... which I really need now I'm sewing.
