Sadly I haven't had time to make anything this week, but I thought I'd show you some thrifty makes I did recently for my hallway.
Living in an old house we're cursed with drafts, and desperately needed a door sausage to keep the howling winds out. I'd seen some gorgeous ones about, but they were so expensive. In the end I picked up a very cheap one, but it was definitely more practical than beautiful.
But I was lucky to find a lovely piece of fabric in the remnant bin at John Lewis. The colours were perfect for our hallway, so I got the machine out and made a simple tube, sewed a channel each end, threaded with ribbon, tied on bows and hey presto!
There was just enough fabric left to make a small cushion to go on my bargainous £2 charity shop chair which sits under the stairs.
I'm rubbish with a sewing machine, but very excited to have found a local beginners course starting soon. I can't wait to start learning!
If you want to see more of my charity shop finds, pop back to my blog every week for 'Magpie Monday'.
Now, you could pop over to White Lily Green to see all the very clever crafty people's creations.
