The Enterprising Beginning.....

Welcome to the Waste not, Want knot project. The goal is to turn textile waste into desirable objects that people want. Its a combination of all those things our grandparents told us; waste not, want not, combined with modern day landfill avoidance, reduce, reuse, recycle, and a need to liberate a great collection of fabrics and trims amassed over a few years from the back of my wardrobe, under my bed, in the roof space etc.... I have a design degree and an addiction to textile arts and crafts, lets see where it leads....

Happy New Year full of new ideas and crafts

Wow 2009 seemed to zip by ( pun intended). I'm bursting with new ideas for crafts and can't wait to find the time to try them all. Its summer school holidays here so I have my girls home from school, which means 3x the crafty mess. I gifted Abby a bag of fabric scraps for Christmas  she is always asking for mine) and she has been busy making everything from wristbands to clothes for littlest pet shop toys. The next step is to get her going on the old Bernina, leaving my industrial sewing machine free for me.  I have made up a few more Morepork(owl) butlers ready for the next craft market and have a few new ideas to whip together  as well. This year I hope to be a little more organised ( and tidy) and try out lots of new ideas. Christmas was lovely and all our handmade gifts were very well received. Photos to follow, the photographer is on holiday!
