Upcycling ~ by The Patchwork Heart ♥

Hello and nice to meet you all!
I am a new member of Pins and Needles.
My name is Heather and I am from England.
Please visit me at

I love anything country ... my new passion is upcycling
and I love to collect fabric from car boot sales
which I then remake into


eco friendly fat quarter bundles
and rag rugs

Rag rugging has taken over my life at the moment
with family fearing for their clothes!
I have had so much interest on
that I have written a tutorial.
You can find it here ~ follow the link on the side bar to the tutorial page.
