I love the blatant misleading-ness of this post title.
As if I did anything, really.
But that's kind of where I am at this point
in my crafting life.
I can't sew (though I want to learn so badly!)
Heck, even if I could, it would be hard to find the time.
What I DO have is a love of vintage...and maybe 5 minutes.
Therefore I am an "upcycler," in the very barest sense of the word.
Nonetheless, I am happy with my wreath!
I found just the vintage wreath at the thrift store
the other day.
1 buck. That's how I roll.
I loved the fabrics on it :)
So colorful and fun.
I knew it had to have a flag banner on it,
to up the happy quotient, so I made one
using more old fabrics.
Then I added this little guy on there,
which is a page from an old cloth baby book
that I put into a badge,
This is already hanging on the ugly wood panel walls
in the kids room that I need to paint, lol.
I'm finding all kinds of fun things for the kids' bedroom
lately--I'll have to share soon!
In the meantime I'll do some more upcycling,
and pretend it's "real" crafting
like some insanely talented ladies I know do
