DIY Magnetic Pincushion…

I used a little vintage trinket dish, a magnet and some glass glue. It’s a super easy make and so pretty! I’ve seen versions using more magnets and opaque China dishes, so more coverage for pins, the options are endless. This is the perfect amount of pins for sat by my sewing machine though…

This used to be a bedsheet…

I had an old bedsheet that I ruined in our house move, it was a gorgeous high quality cotton and I felt it would just be a waste to throw because of a couple of stains. I’ve been wanting a white shirt for a while and after the success of my last Bakerloo blouse (made from a pattern and fabric from Little Miss Sew n Sew, click Here for my blog on it) I thought I’d make it again. I love my patterned version, but you have to have the right outfit on to go with it. So for the days I want something smart/casual this is perfect! It’s also great for layering, not only surprisingly warm, the statement white collar looks amazing under a cardigan or jumper.

Now I’m looking at old bedding and curtains in a new light and wondering what else I could upcycle…
