This wallhanging has been in my mind for a while now, ever since I was gifted some vintage curtains to turn into “something nice”. I thought the saying was very apt to reuse and recycle the fabrics with! The words are appliquéd and stitched using various techniques and many other upcycled fabrics, mostly from my children’s old clothes and the buttons....well they are all vintage and cut off our old clothing too. I really enjoyed making this and pushing myself to have a go at different stitching techniques and overall I am very happy with the effect. It is hanging in our hallway and I love it there.
