Wool Pants Pillow
What are you going to make this weekend? Maybe … a Wool Pants Pillow pieced together from old pants!?!
Cut off the legs of wool pants, open one seam, and make a 16 inch square. Then use other pant leg and cut rectangles and squares and sew them together quilt-style into another 16 inch square.
Sew the front and back together leaving an opening for the pillow insert. Turn right side out. I used a pre-fab pillow insert that I had left over from another project. Then pin and sew opening closed.
Excellent upcycled organisation idea!
Fantastic altered band aid tins, there’s loads more of these too!

I just passed up a bag of these at a thrift shop because I was worried I was being a hoarder…now I know that I am just intuitive! I think these would make great hooks for oven mitts, aprons etc.

I have always liked vintage spice racks but never really knew what to do with them as my spice collection has always been much too large for one. I adore the way these are painted and grouped. This would work in just about any room in the house. Now I can buy the next few shelves I see at the thrift shop as I already know where they’ll go!
Make this practical utensil holder with some scrap wood, pipe strips and paint! So simple and yet kind of perfect for those with more wall than counter space!
