Makeover Monday: 9/3

 ~*~
This exotic fabric really caught my eye at the thrift.  It was a fitted double sheet, but I cut the whole thing up into a veeeeery long 1.5" wide strip.  I wound it up into a ball, got out the crochet hook, and...

...made an upcycled hanging basket.  It's perfect to catch the mail when you first come home, and would work nicely for a bouquet of dried flowers, too.  Ooh, or take-out menus!

And guess what?  My *ingenious* design can also sit nicely upon a tabletop if you prefer.  And of course, it can be made to match any decor.

  It's been a long time since I have made something new.  I'm a happy girl this Labor Day.  How about you?
