Friday Finish

I have a weakness for little castoff projects.
They usually find their way to me through
hand me downs...
or spied in the thrift store.

These little UN-finished projects call my name.
Their voices scream at me from the shelf!!!

They are typically stuffed into old plastic bags.
They usually include thread, yarn, and other necessities.
This one even came with a NEEDLE!!!

This little project contained TWO of these oval-like needlepoint pieces.
There were some GAPS in the needlepoint.
Whoever began this one was ALMOST DONE!!!!
I finished it up at soccer practice last night 
and during a little netflix watching.

I'm sure it was originally intended to be an eyeglass case....
but I thought it would make a GREAT little zipper bag!

I was RIGHT!

It IS a GREAT BAG!

It's the perfect size for my rotary cutters...
in case THAT's what I use it for.

Since there were TWO of these lovely oval pieces...
I can make ANOTHER zipper bag!!!

Oh the wonder and JOY of little castoffs!!!
They always find a HAPPY home at my house.
