Big make update...upcycled clothes, rag rug WIP, miss sally the dreadlocked dolly and zingy men :) very very pic heavy

Zingy EDF men :)

Miss Sally the now dreadlocked dolly...before and after pics :)

Newest rag rug in the making...

And lots of upcycled clothes made from old Tshirts, tank tops, dresses etc

Made from an old fitted tshirt into a shrug..
 Old camisole top into a skirt...
 Old XL tshirt I bought for a pound into a fun long top with crochet straps :)...
 Old large tshirt bought for a pound made into a fun top...
 My old redundant nirvana tshirt went from an unused sentimental tshirt into a dress I can wear :)...
 This floral skirt was a dress that did not suit me, just a few snips and a piece of elastic makes a much nicer skirt ...
 One of hubbys old tshirts into a pretty slob out top :)...

I really need a sewwing machine as handsewing takes forever! And then i can make even more upcycled clothes :)

New life, fresh start.

We have recently decided to give up bricks and mortar and bought a static caravan to live here with friends :)

So a new area, new home, new school for the kids...but it will be so much better than being tied to an area we are not happy in at all and to a house that costs a fortune to live in.

The caravan we have bought is a fixer needs cleaning, painting, new carpet.And a woodburner to keep us warm.

A couple of weeks in the tent, lots of elbow grease on the caravan and a better more fun free life  for us and the kids :)

But I have managed to squeeze in some time to keep crocheting my green granny mandala..
And I really need to make more of these...
I will try to get round to doing a pos of everything I have been up making EDF zingy men, giving a dolly dreadlocks, dressing up my dog etc etc ;)
