Flowerpot Fancies, Make It Yourself!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What fun to be featured on the MIY blog today!  I designed these fun flowerpot covers with my great friend Lisa Bee Wilson of Towerhouse Quilts, and they were published in a fun article in Make It Yourself Magazine last year.  We used up-cycled sweaters in a variety of decorative and useful projects.  Aside from these fun flowerpot covers, I am currently using the cozy neck warmer in this cold snap we are having!  Thanks to Meredith Corporation for the fun reminder of this article!

Upcycle/Recycle!

Well, it’s been rainy and windy for the last few days here in the Pacific Northwest! I thought I needed a pick-me-up, so I’m sharing a project that was featured in an article in the Fall/Winter issue of Make It Yourself.

These flower pot cover-ups are so cheerful and fun!  I especially love having something to set my Christmas poinsettia into that will fit with the rest of my Holiday decor, and what better use is there for a worn out Christmas sweater!!  Find out how to make them, and lots of other projects in the magazine, it’s available now at newstands.  The article has several designs from  Lisa of Towerhouse Quilts too, BONUS!

Make It Yourself!

Believe it or not, this Men’s Neck  Scarf was made with upcycled sweaters!  It’s part of an article featured in the Fall/Winter issue of Make It Yourself magazine which you can find on newstands now, or you can get a digital copy by using the link.  It is a fast project, very functional and stylish.  Make it in team colors for your favorite sports fanatic, or like I did in monochromatic shades.
