About six weeks ago, Scott of Blue Nickel Studios, sent me some Flea Market Fancy scraps. They were for me to do whatever I wanted with; however, if I chose to accept a challenge, I could make up a quick project for Generation Q. I promptly said “Yes! Count me in.” And then forgot about it.
Last week, I suddenly remembered and set to work. I wasn’t sure how to use the little stack of scraps. But then I saw a small wooden craft hanger poking out of the bin and things started to click. You can read what I said about it on GenQ’s blog here. And if you check out today’s post on GenQ, you’ll see what Heather Jones made with her little bunch of scraps.
It has the nostalgic feel I associate with Flea Market Fancy. And is certainly reminiscent of the bags used for clothespins, or pegs. But you can use it for anything that isn’t heavy. As with most Melissa P projects, this one is easy to personalize. Obviously, your choice of fabrics will change the look completely. Substitute lace or rick rack where I’ve added the ribbon and you have much frillier, more girly look. Use a solid with large contrasting stitches at the pocket and you have something masculine. It’s really all up to you.
Have fun with it! And enjoy your weekend.
