The £5 challenge is on, I found some red patterned fabric that has been lurking for #@*! years with a remnant price tag of £1 70, then I cut a little off a piece of wonderful scarlet solid. This came together and made 2 items,
An unlined knitting bag.
A knitting needle roll.
Here they are together, the needles in the roll can stay there as they came free with a magazine. So 2 items for around £3, I have included a little for thread and electricity. The burning question is how much are they worth? Oh and where on earth will I sell them?
I have no idea how to sell on EBay or facebook, any tips or help gratefully accepted.
While I was at it I ran up a couple of lined aprons, just straight with a pocket and ties long enough to wrap round and tie in front. They each came from a single 23" WOF cut so each cost less than £2, both were from sale fabric that I got very cheap.
Dinner was pretty cheap as well, half a block of puff pastry from Farm Foods, a small tub of cream cheese with herbs from Lidl, 3 blocks of frozen spinach and a few crumbs of stilton with a little black pepper and onion granules. I rolled out the pastry into a rectangle, mixed the rest together and piled onto half the pastry, folded one side over the filling and crimped the edges. A quick brush with a little milk and 2 slashes in the top and into the mini oven for 30 minutes at 200c. I had carrots, cauli and cabbage with half, and now I am too full to move. I am certain that dinner came in at less than £1, the pie cost little more than that and was big enough for 2 generous servings.
I was going to make a trip to the CS and leave a couple of boxes of things but the weather put me off, there is no parking close to any of them.
Tomorrow is another day, as the saying goes and I enjoyed my day sewing and cooking, not to mention the eating part.
Now to tackle the washing up and get the kitchen to rights. Then I may just put the TV on and get some hooky going.
