An Interesting Recycled Quilt



When I was in North Carolina in June, there was this great mall art exhibit of recycled materials.  This quilt was in the exhibit and I'm sorry I don't have the artist's name.  I think it is a really interesting use of reused fabric, especially jeans details.

It made me want to start saving old jeans to cut up, but then I realized I save too much stuff and really shouldn't add any more clutter.  Maybe I could save one or two pairs of jeans...

Silhouettes Classic Blouse by Peggy Sagers



This is the Classic Blouse #600.  I absolutely fell in love with this peacock print.  It has a great drape in a herringbone weave.  Darts give the blouse fit and shape while still being loose enough to be comfortable.  I left the front pockets off.

Button close up- plastic and very washable.

Collar and band cut in one.  Quick and easy construction.

Kwik Sew Top 3302



As you may know, I love using stuff I just happened to have already.  So here is a blouse from fabric that I just happened to have (no idea where it came from!).  It is a synthetic crepe in a diagonal dot pattern.  It looked a little plain when I finished so I added 3 bias flounces to the front neck.  I didn't hem them, so I'm hoping my hunch is correct that raveling shouldn't be a problem.
