I was inspired by her, and I wanted to try to create some of the projects she created.
My hubby is the chef of the family, and has burned his hand more times than my 4 year old can count. (She can count to 39 by the way) so I sewed one of the larger pads down the long side, and turned it inside out. It was like a really skinny pocket. But it fit perfectly on the handles of the pots and pans.
My sunglasses from my Prada refashion broke! I know....so sad. You can check out that post HERE
I'm not very gentle with my sunglasses, but I learned my lesson.
I will have to thrift some new ones to replace those red puppies. I vowed to NOT let that happen again, so I took two of the big red pads, I mean HUGE...80's I'm sure. I sewed them together, trimmed the extra fabric, and flipped it inside out! It is a perfect pouch to keep my other pair of sunnies safe and sound.
There ya go! Two cool things you can do with old shoulder pads!
P.S. Huge shout out to my Mother-in-Law Colette! She hooked me up with all the colors of the rainbow in thread and a sweet vintage sewing box! now I don't have to sew everything with white thread!!!
