A couple of "Things (that) Used To Be Other Things"
First my new oven gloves (which used to be a couple of pairs of old jeans, I could have used just one pair had it not been for a bit of a cock-up on the cutting front, but I kind of like the colour change).
I got the basic idea for these from Alisa Burke's blog (which is full of brilliant ideas and inspiration). I tweaked her idea a little bit as the originals were individual mitts and I prefer a double oven glove.
Next a small corsage. Can you see what it used to be? Yep, its half a zip ~ with a tiny bit of ribbon and a few odd beads to jazz it up.
These are such fun to make. I bought a big handful of old zips from the charity shop and I've made a pile of them.
Now, what old junk can I chop up and re-purpose next...
