More than meets the eye

It's been about a year since i got inspired in the recycling department. It's stuck and now i see more and more uses for supposedly useless items. On almost a daily basis i see more inspiration on the www. So here are today's creations, in part inspired by my fellow bloggers and the rest down to me.

This little brooch was made using a shrunken jumper. I played around and played around and finally after being inspired to have a go at making a material flower/rose settled on this. The picture doesn't really do it much justice, but i think you can get the jist.

This glass jar was covered with the sleeve of a previously recycled jumper the roses also made with other oddments from this jumper. I saw this idea here i think the idea of cute woolly jars storing your pencils or brushes is far nicer than just empty jars but then you know me and jars :)

And finally, no element recycled  this is also one of this weeks creations. Made using a fairy transfer from a book sent to me kindly by my friend Senta. All hand sewn and filled with sunshine, love and lavender :)
