Happy Mistakes are the best kind. You've heard the saying, "When life gives you lemons...make lemonade", so true. I have a wonderful husband, who is a true 50/50 partner in life. He does dishes, he does laundry, we even finish each others' sentences.
He once shrunk one of my favorite blue sweaters while helping with the laundry. I was crushed and found I couldn't part with the beautiful wool. I made it into bluebird ornaments, and when playing around with the scraps, the discarded v-neck and wrist cuffs of the sweater, I realized they looked like a roof line and pieces of fence. I then went thrifting and found some basic colored sweaters and created house shaped pillows!
I am excited that they are featured in this summer's August issue of GreenCraft magazine!
Some of you have asked if there are any available for sale and yes! I am tied up with other projects and have not loaded them onto my etsy site yet, so if you need or want them soon, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss and order!
