Hello there...

Well, it's been a long time. Kelly has been so good as to hold down the blogging fort all by herself. I'm sorry to have been so absent. My precious Papa died last month and I haven't been able to motivate my pregnant self to do much. But, here I am and I vow to try to be a better blogger.

So the project for the day has been one of the utmost simplicity. I made myself a change purse out of a pair of kids chinos. Super simple, I used the pocket for the front and the back is the bottom of the pant leg. All I had to do was sew them together and add a button. Yeah!!! I feel so good after a successful project. Even a little one like this.
What I really want to try is this repurposed mans shirt and here is another version maternity style. I have my doubts this will turn out as well as the pocket book, but I'll let you know.
I am off to Starbucks to meet a friend for coffee. Have a happy Thursday all. Oh, speaking of Thursday check out this site Creative Thursday. I love the site and how it came about.


  1. It will never stop being a sad shock to think of your big strong dad being gone.

    Isn't it crazy how something simple like pulling off making a change purse out of a pocket can make us feel better? We're so much alike. I cried when I thought my doll was a failure. I made her while I waited anxiously to find out about chemo and it just felt important to see her mended.

    I don't think it's a coincidence that we've started this blog in a year that has been personally difficult for both of us. We have so much to be thankful for... and so much to look forward to.

    Here's to making something wonderful and new out of something discarded!

  2. What a great idea! I have lots of jeans and I need little bags like that to hold my ipod, or nintendo, etc and this is perfect. A very creative way to repurpose.

  3. Let's put all those little hands to work crafting Kandyce! :)
