Cording made using veggie mesh

I used the poly mesh from Veggie and meat bags to make this cording. I am very excited about using items that we normally throw out to make beautiful things.

New form of recycling...

Today I found a piece of plastic strapping used to hold boxes together. I decided to bring it home and use it for a base for my new love machine wrapped cording.

Don't Forget my first love.....

Omnistitching...I wish that these machines were available today. I know that you can do many of the features on newer machines but these are really heavy work horses. They don't care how heavy the fabric or if I want to sew backwards..

It is wonderful to have something that I can do when I feel up to it. It is so hard not feeling well. Well any way back to something to take my mind off of my troubles. I can think of all kinds of embellishments and opportunities that I can use this for. I am going to use the machine wrapped cord to couch on something cool..
