A Gift Made from Thrifted Fabric


I presented a coworker with this fun little owl made from thrifted fabrics today. The fabrics were purchased during a thrift shopping haul that I briefly described in this post.

The Blue Gingham is scrap fabric from another sewing project.
The Brown/Black/Red Plaid used for the "body" is from a pair of old plaid pants
The Patterned Fabric used for the wings is from a thrifted men's dress shirt

The creature's eyes and beak are made of felt scraps and the stuffing is from a very soft old pillow. I'll be crafting, painting, and sewing as much as possible, utilizing thrifted/recycled materials. Hopefully this small start will motivate me to use my 3 hours daily (literally) of free time for crafting and art.

  2. ) the report stipulates that electrical energy accounts for 44 percent of the
    total water production costs of a typical membrane seawater desalination. If a
    building resides within a large city, like Austin or San Antonio,
    the City provides off-site plumbing. According to the Board, groundwater in the area is used for
    both agricultural and drinking purposes.

    and can be added to existing water supplies, for example reservoirs and dams.
    In wastewater treatment, a p - H control system that uses a programmable p - H controller
    and p - H probe to proportionally control the flow of carbon dioxide injection decreasing
    the p - H from a basic level to a programmable set point,
    can substantially streamline any p - H adjustment process.
