Giving it a try to upholstery...

...And having lots of fun!

I got these two chairs at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for $15!!!!!!!

In the process of cleaning the chair I found that the chair is signed by a Janet and that the gold velvet fabric was the original.

Alice in Crochetland label

I got these gorgeous labels made last year but I hadn't gotten around to use them until now!

Jersey yarn creations

I have discovered this type of material called jersey yarn or t-shirt yarn that I love! It's reporpoused yarn from old t-shirts or left overs from the companies that make t-shirts, this last type is the one I'm using.
It's perfect for making rugs but also the  handbags that I love!

Btw, en espaƱol este material se llama trapillo!

Back to work!

I have been a bit lazy lately, not with the creation of new pieces but with the publishing of the pictures, the blog... The creative part is always nonstop!
