REMEMBER!!!

Remember these (I call them leather but they are not) straps I got at my mother's?

Of course you to, I showed them to you!! Just joking, this is coming from someone who can't remember where anything is.....


Well......it has gone from this....



to this!!!



Now I know you remember this (wink, wink)...I was teaching my young girls to blanket stitch. They each had to blanket stitch their initial and then I would make a tote for them. Well....this is the second one I got back. The other ones you have seen, I did by machine.


So, here is a picture of the front of the strap.

another picture of the front.....
This is what the back of the strap looks like!
Glad I could find a use for these.....

Aw, what a great project for them to learn on! I bet those will be used happily and maybe will inspire more interest in stitching! Have a restful weekend!
