Like a lot of people I know, I tend to stockpile supplies for projects I’m working on (or think I might want to work on someday). What’s worse, I end up with a lot of half-completed projects lying around. So I’m trying to make use of the materials I have (and maybe clear some room to put the rest of it away).
Thus, we have:
a pair of Pretz fabric pouches–these are for sale in my Etsy shop
The Pretz fabric was created using inkjet printable cotton sheets. They’re marketed to quilters, but I’ve been trying to find ways to work them into clothing and accessories.
Recycled manga envelopes (also for sale on Etsy)
What’s nice about all of these projects is that they were all fairly quick. I think the pouches took the longest. Not only did I have to purchase and eat the Pretz (such a terrible burden), but then cut the boxes apart, scan them into the computer, arrange the images in Photoshop, print the fabric, and then finally get down to sewing. I really like being able to put anything I want on fabric with just my home printer, though.
