More Recycling

Thought I would have a go at another crafty recycling project. This time using Capri Sun juice pouches!

It was a much faster project than the sweetie wrapper bracelet. This one is a prototype because, as can be seen in the photograph, I managed to cut through the front of this pouch before it even got near the sewing machine. doh!

My five year old stole this one immediately after I had made it to keep 'stuff' in. I had to steal it back to take the photos!

It is the perfect size for bank cards and loose change and, it turns out, small items needed only by a small child :-)

I am thinking of booking a craft fair for June so I think I will make a few more to sell there, might even add one to my Misi shop I think they are quite quirky.

Would like to say thank you to my followers and commenter's (is that even a word?) it is lovely to hear from you :-)

All Revealed!

This is what I made with my wrappers, a bracelet!

I had a crazy notion that I could make these to sell, but I found it such a tedious process, that I don't think I could make another one, which is to the dismay of my sons who enjoyed emptying the wrappers!!

Hello Again!

Well here I am again. I have decided to start a new blog in a new home. When I switched from my own site to using www.madebyval.misi.co.uk I couldn't take my blog with me, but I was starting to miss it, despite being an irregular poster, so thought I would crack open a Blogger blog until I can host my own one again.

I have a Blog atached to my Misi shop I will probably just double post on both. I will see how it goes, anyway thats all from me just now, off to investigate widgets :-)
