Let me introduce you to a new-to-me blog called "Make It Do" from Calli. And some of her wonderful pictures.
I love the overall concept of this blog, in her own words: "using things you have and being resourceful to make wonderful things... and make life sweet."
Doesn't it feel good to use what you've already got? I mean, isn't that why some of us quilters can't throw away our scraps? Because we know there are so many possibilities in those scraps!
I took many of my first quilting classes from Calli's mom, Leslie Isom who is phenomenal. And clearly Calli inherited a lot of that talent. She has some great ideas for ways to use what you've already got on hand to grow and make good food, clean your house, and fashionably outfit your kids. Check her out!
