Repurposed Pillowcase Dresses…

I had the privilege today of witnessing not only a great act of kindness, but a fabulous repurposing project.  My cousin Gina is going to Africa in May, and she and her friends and family are sewing pillowcase dresses for her to take to Kenya where they will be giving them to poor little girls.  These pillowcases were donated or bought second hand for this generous cause.  The pattern is relatively simple – just a bit of labor and lots of love required.  Gina is going to Africa through a program called HEART and also hopes to work with WEEP (Women’s Employment Empowerment Program).  Here is the link for the dress pattern:  http://www.jenleheny.com/pillowcase-dress-instructions

New: Kitchen Magnets from repurposed things…

Yes, the hundreds of old desk phones we disassembled last summer have contributed to another repurposed project.  We now have fun, eclectic, kitchen magnets made from old phone magnets, vintage jewelry, medallions, watches, and glass.  The display board is of course repurposed as well, being the door to an old metal cabinet. ~Molly

Custom signs from repurposed materials…

These custom signs were made mostly of repurposed materials – the wood base on two of these was made from a plank from a 200 year-old barn. The lettering is done with carved  pieces of wood.

We do commisions and we’re working on some standard signs as well. Email us if you’re interested in having a sign made.
