I saw this onesie in a rummage sale a couple of days ago. It caught my attention because of the image of the sailor bear peeking out from among other clothes, I immediately thought that maybe there is a lighthouse image along with it (I collect anything with lighthouses on them) so i picked it up, and viola the lighthouse said hello!
Back to the onesie, it was really really cheap so I bought it. A recycling idea came to mind and it was to cut the square image and maybe make it as an applique to a throw pillow cover. Then I remembered I saw a sample of a wrist-rest for the computer mouse and the size of the image would be perfect for the size of a wrist-rest. So, I decided to make it. I stitched a border around it in a red thread to add a little more style and color.
I should really get myself a portable electric sewing machine! I have so many projects in mind that needs a lot of sewing.

    1 . try adding raw rice in your wrist pads ...then you can freeze or heat them too. I make them myself :>)
    2. check your local freecycle dot org and also craigslist dot org , for a cheap if not free sewing machine. even though personally I think the hand-stick is fab. peace and happy crafting.

  4. HI I am Marlene from Swap bot swap check out my blog swap #2. You are vey creative and I rally like the recycling you are doing.

  5. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions! I was quite surprise too that my hand stitching went well. Before, when I think of how long would it take me to sew something by hand, I cancel the project. But, this time, I was really patient and I put a lot of focus in my sewing so that the stitches will be straight (lol)!


I would love to hear from you!
