A cover

I made a cover for our chair from old jeans. Not an easy job, it took a lot of time and effort. It's not a perfect fit, but I do like the result.

I cut around those back pockets and thought it would be fun to make a pillow with those.

I made up the pattern as I went and I like it a lot. I'm not sure about the velcro though, but I don't know where I can find magnetic buttons. I'll keep my eye out for them...

Daniel

Since our last cat died, we have been feeling that the house was empty. So today I went to the shelter and got ourselves another one.
Meet Daniel (though I don't know how long that name will stick, he reacts a lot better to "Beest" (animal), which is what we used to call our last cat and accidentely started calling him).
He's ten, probably even twelve years or older. That's what we went for, since the road we live on is so busy that a lot of cats die. We liked to give an older cat a home for a while, hoping that he would be old enough to stay off the road and knowing nobody else would have taken him, so at least he would have a good last few years even if he died on that road.
But for now, he stays inside and enjoys exploring our home and getting to know our family.

I've seen a lot of these online lately and had to try myself. Such a nice way to use up some scraps.

I went to a fabric market. That was fun! And of course I didn't leave empty handed.
I can see more bags in my immediate future.

Also I'm going to try and make quilts for our bed from the fabrics on the bottom picture.
