I found an old, torn linen cushion cover, so I'm keeping the zipper and making giant snails from it. I was going to try to mend it and use it as a cushion cover but it's a massive hole and very frayed. Also, this linen is just the perfect fabric for making snail shells, I think.
Almost everything I sew is made from second hand fabric, old woolen blankets, scraps and remnants. With so much fabric and old clothing going to landfill, I don't like to buy new. Also, I think things like linen and wool are so much nicer when a little worn.
Giant linen snails coming to my online store very soon.
