woven fibres of a different kind

Woven fibres of a different kind, instead of cotton and a sewing machine, the fibres used here are from different plants...the Australian picabeen palm and the ordinary garden variety of banana and the machine swapped for hands...

Wonderful organic use of fibres, the weaving is a great way to coordinate hands, mind, imagination, sprit...

Now just to put on the finishing touches...

Thanks Rene, a joy.

A bit of up-cycled fun

I just *love* the way this little dress came up.  Fabulous colours and pattern.

On one of my browsing sessions for fabrics, I saw this pillowcase in a seconds shop and it grabbed my eye and imaginiation.  So, I took it home popped it in the wash, dried it off.  Then whipped up this little cute girl's dress.  Upcycled fun.

What upcycled/re-purposed goodies have you been working on?
