    Love the idea of using scrap fabric for things! Have been trying to figure out on my own how to do things just like your ideas, but can’t figure out all the directions in my head.
    Great idea of a book!!!! (Especially since I can’t find places locally that accept material for recycling….)

  2. Debi Marheine says:

    Looks like an interesting book! I love trying new techniques or being exposed to new ideas.

    I’ve just come across visible mending as a bit of an art form and am looking forward to trying it out on the pairs of jeans I have which are fine apart from holey knees… What a cool prize!

  9. Chloe Collins says:
