Make Do and Mend

Most of my bits and bobs that I make are made using old bits of materials that I've either discovered in my mum's loft or found at car boot sales or made from pieces of clothing from Charity shops.

So with this is mind I decided to create a little bit of 'Art' around this slogan.  I got a nice bright piece of felt and hand stitched the words 'Make Do and Mend' and a border.  I added a few white buttons and then left a needle in the top left corner.  I then framed it in a white box frame.

I think it's a nice subtle reminder to think twice before chucking something out and to think how it could be re used.  And if you can't re use it yourself then make sure you take it to a charity shop and let someone else (like me) discover it and give it a new lease of life!
