Getting creative and recycling things

Hello everyone , time flies . I have been making cards and I have also taken up sewing after watching pictures on Pinterest ......and I started to  learn more about jewelry making . So here are some cards that take us into spring , and,  getting creative with sewing , I made  a pouch or wristlet and a shawl, recycled from garments . Since a couple of months have past again this is picture heavy .

The inside 

This is the making of the pouch : I had lace I cut off from a skirt and fabric from a tote bag and another piece of fabric .

 I did not use a pattern , I cut a straight piece and rounded the corners with a plate . Just made it all on sight and fully sewed it by hand since I am unable to sit for longer than 15 minutes and also  because my sewing machine is too heavy for me to get out of its place .

 Finished !

 Now this black lace scarf I made from a long wide skirt and I added a fine lace border to it . I am quite pleased with the result . Just some small finishes here and there .

So , this is it , until next time , take care,
