I decided to chuck the armchair out(local charity shop) and put the sofa in there.
Its much more cozier now, we dont have a living room, u see when u turn 3 of ur bedrooms into studios there isnt much space for one!
So now we can spend more time in the kitchen, one of us can cook while the other one sits on the computer or does sudoku(and its not me doing that).
Only problem is, the arm rests are made of wood, so fairly hard and uncomfortable.
Ive got LOADS of scraps left over from all my sewing ventures, its a shame throwing them away, but normally i cant use scraps of a certain size anymore(if i dont want to make my customers wear quilts), so i bagged them all up and chucked them into the storage room(i normally have them in bags too).
Now i finally decided to make something out of them. U see there were these 2 skirts i made and apparently they didnt want to be skirts and get send out into the big wide(sometimes scary world) they are quite homely and shy and like to stay comfy.
So when i made them into skirts i realized a bit too late that the fabric wasnt stretchy enough for the size i made them and i cudnt wear them AT ALL, so i thought i turn them into pillows, clever idea i thought, i'd stuff them with all these scraps i had left over. I knew it wud be a bit hard, but it wud do.
So now our new matching pillows live in our kitchen and keeping me company whilst typing stuff on my computer and protecting my bones getting hit by nasty wooden arm rests!
Great being resourceful and making things, isnt it?!:)
Have u turned something funny into something useful lately?
