Blogger's Challenge #193: Reuse or Recycle


I'll admit this is a stretch....big time!  I am reusing (sort of) some fabric that will be unavailable on Jan. 4.  I had used the fabric on my door decoration eariler so that's how I am reusing...super LAME!!! 

I saw that Claudia had made a couple of these ornaments and I wanted to try them out.  I used the larger scallop square on the Scallop Squares Duo Bigz Die to cut out the squares and the fabric is the Deck the Halls Fabric from the Holiday Mini catalog.

I watched this video to learn how to make it.  Mine turned out a little odd shaped but only because I could only find a 2 1/2 inch styrofoam ball so try a 3 inch styrofoam ball and see if you are more successful!

Off to see how the other girls reused and recycled.  Please check them out, too!!!

Happy New Year and God's blessings to you all!
