Waste Not Want Not Wednesday: Fun Letters

What do you get when you combine the legs of old jeans whose tops you've already used to make purses, some felt you bought for a Halloween costume that never got made and a valance you got for a great price at Salvation Army?

Well, before I answer that I have to share the process, right? First, stack the fabrics up, trace the letters, which can be found at Happy Together, onto the fabric and pin. Be careful to leave enough extra around the sides as your fabrics may shift while sewing and you don't want to find yourself short on the edge of one like I did.

Next, cut them into individual fabric 'sandwiches', sew, then trim off excess.

You get these very cool letters for a terrific little boy who is turning four!

I think they look cute tied up with the jeans seam.


  1. How cute! What a wonderful birthday present.

  2. Thank you. I can't wait to give them to him!

  3. I think these letters are a great idea...thanks for passing it on.

  4. You bet. I'm actually going to use this idea for decorating at an upcoming baby shower...not with Spider Man of course. ;)
