I found this handmade apron for just a pound, and will add pockets, a pincushion and a loop for scissors so I can wear it when I am sewing. Then I won't be searching for the needle I have stuck in my clothes or the arm of the sofa, I can keep little bits and pieces in the pockets and the scissors will be always to hand.
I liberated this droplets from a broken light fitting someone had thrown away in the rubbish. They are glass, but after a good wash will look nice and shiny like crystal. To become earrings perhaps, or to trim a bag.
