Knitted dish clothes. These were really fun to knit. The patterns were free on line.

Here are a few of my home made pads. I used flannel baby blankets from the thrift store, 25 cents a blanket and each one made two pads.

This was a  flannel king size fitted sheet for  $1 , and is now going to be napkins.

This is the 8 foot bench that Tommy made for the kitchen table, to hold all of our family. They all signed it before they left. It’s heavy and takes two big men to move it.

  1. I love that bench! It looks beautifully made. And hurrah for cloth pads, especially the thrifty use of recycled fabrics. =)

  2. Wow, you have been busy! I do not mind clicking to see your pictures. I only mentioned the resizing because when I first started on homesteader, I was so frustrated to have my pictures disappear and not know why. I have another place on google blogspot and it is so much easier. I put many more pictures there because it is less time consuming. All your hand made products are so pretty and thrifty! I love your way of recycling. 🙂
