A big day!!!


Well, it’s not EXACTLY like winning the lottery, getting my doctorate, becoming a grandma, or having start up stocks in Facebook.

But at this point, to me, it’s almost as big.

Thanks to all of you, after 2 months of blogging, Chic Envelopements has received over 10,000 views.

I’ve been so encouraged by all of your comments and my mind is full of ideas for future refashions.

For example, I just received 3 pairs of my late mother’s wool pants from my niece, Melanie. Since the pants aren’t really anything we would wear now, she asked me to refashion them into a bag or a purse. What a great way to “carry”πŸ™‚ a little of our mother/grandmother with us each day. This is a project I can’t wait to start and share with you.

Thanks again for taking the time to come into my world for a little while each day!

    Congrats on your milestone! Looking forward to seeing your repurposed Grandmother goodies! Are any of the wool pants good for felting?

    • I was thinking the same thing about the felting. The pants are 70% wool and 30% polyester. A felted bag would be beautiful, but I’m not sure if it would felt being a wool blend. What do you think?

    My grandma made bags for her granddaughters out of upholstery fabric. I loved them. I wish I still had one to show you.

    • Oh Barb, I wish you still had them too. I plan on photographing the process and posting it, once I decide on a design. I guess I should try one with different fabric first, before I start cutting up my mom’s (and this is for my friends from London) wool trousers. She had a much more comical vision when I said wool “pants”.πŸ™‚

    Congratulations Beth. The next 10,000 is none too far away I am sure! And what a gorgeous idea to refashion grandmas pants (I have to think trousers or else its a strange concept!) Really looking forward to the results.

  4. You are doing a great job Beth….CONGRATULATIONS!!

    CONGRATULATIONS BETH! I’m up to 315 hits in one month. I look forward to your posts and can’t wait to see the refashioned bags. I have several items that I’d like to refashion (restyle); but I just can’t seem to find the time; and of course my sewing skills are VERY rusty.

    • Thanks so much Sandra! I can totally relate to the time thing. I wish there were 30 hours in each day. When you do find the time to refashion something, I’d love to see it!
