St-Paddy's Day at Ironcraft!

Another 2 weeks just flew by. I always wait too long but this time I made it without feeling like I was sliding into home. The theme was Green as in St-Paddy's Day or something recycled, up cycled and the such. I had ideas of what to make and I like to tackle something that I don't always know what to do. This time, though, I chose to make a journal. It is both Green and green. The image on the piece of fabric is so cute and could easily be a little leprechaun or wood elf so that covered the Green in St-Patrick's Day. The supporting fabric is an up cycled green dishcloth. I recycle often old clothes and fabrics from items that can no longer be used for their original purpose. It makes me feel better buying clothes knowing that we give them a long life. I make quite a few of these journals and each one is different depending on the fabrics and buttons I use. This one answers both "green" challenges. Now, back to that image. Isn't it the cutest thing?

  1. I love using old clothes again too, especially if they aren't good enough to give to charity.
