Earlier this week I announced the winner of our Rock, Paper, Scissors challenge on our FB page, but I also wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate everyone who took part, by showing you their fantastic creations. I love how diverse the entries are: jewelry making, paper crafts, sewing projects… Not to mention the stories behind the projects.
I particularly love the story behind Jan V. A’s slippers (top row, third photo). She says “I made these slippers last night. They are a copy of a pair made by a ‘Grandma’ in our family from an old WWII pattern from a booklet issued by the Board of Trade, called Mrs Sew and Sew, meant to help Americans reuse, patch, mend and make-do during the war. I made a paper pattern using the original slippers and upgraded the materials using denim from a pair of old jeans and duck curtain remnants for the soles”.
